I’ve started getting myself to the gym more regularly lately. My eating habits need a little work, but eh… I’ll get there. haha I have been better, though. One of my biggest downfalls is pop. Ohh my goodness, I love me a glass of Coca Cola on ice. Ugh.
I’ve been doing the Couch to 5k training. (check it out here) It basically has you doing intervalls of walking and jogging for a 9 week period, and by the end you should be able to run a 5k (3.1 miles) without stopping. Right now I’ve only been running on a treadmill. Hopefully it’ll get nice out soon (it’s been raining and storming like crazy where I live), so I can actually get outside and do some interval training. As many of you may know, running on a treadmill is considerably easier than running on solid ground. Solid ground doesn’t force you to keep running like a treadmill does. =p But for now, running on the treadmill, along with other leg exercises, is helping my legs get stronger. I’m not too worried about running fast right now- I’m more concerned about endurance. Once I’m able to jog a 5k without stopping or slowing down, I’ll work on improving my speed.
So, yeah, check it out if running is something you want to get into or improve on. It’s a really helpful training technique, I think. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of running, I get bored really easily, so I have to have music or something on Netflix to keep me entertained. haha But hopefully in a couple months I’ll be a lot better at it, and maybe even come to enjoy it.
We’d all be working a lot harder
Omg, yes please.
