New Exercise Goals

The Couch-to-5K ® Running Plan  Me and Grace have set a couple of goals to challenge ourselves over the summer. I have always wanted to run but never really got past the shin splints and pains of the beginning to go any further. A couple of the blogs I read mentioned the Coach to 5k program. I really have no interest in running in a 5k but would like to be able to run 3 miles a day  a couple of times a week. This program gets you started slow with increments of jogging and walking to eventually build up to three miles of jogging in just 9 weeks. The other challenge is through Jazzercise, for the months of June and July. Grace and myself will team up and if we get a combine total of 60 classes attended we will win t-shirts. I mostly want to do the two challenges because I have been at a plateau of 169 pounds for 2 months and really need to step up my game. I hope by August to have lost another 10 pounds which is only 2 pounds a week. I think Grace would also like to loose the same. Wish us luck!

You can do it! I was a running-hater all my life until I joined a C25K club 2 summers ago. I also said I would never run a 5K but just wanted to get exercise. Two years later I am still running, AND I've run a bunch of 5Ks, too! I still can't say I LOVE running, but I am soooo glad I did C25K (actually, I've done it 3 times now).
