I have committed to run my first 5K with my boss and another coworker who happens to be one of my good friends. My boss is in amazing shape, she is in her 50’s and runs 5Ks several times a year. My friend is also in good shape and unlike me she enjoys running. Our 5K is a little more than a month away so I have to get my ass in gear and start training.
My goal is to train at least four times a week, whether it’s running outsider, on the treadmill at the gym or the treadmill at my parent’s house. I want to do an accelerated Couch to 5K program. I also plan to continue with my fitness classes. Last night I took my first Zumba class and I have to say…I wasn’t impressed. I didn’t get that great of a workout. I feel like I get a better work out in my Insanity and Boot Camp classes. I am not a quitter though, I am going to finish this session out of Zumba and if I don’t like it come the end of the month I will go back to Insanity.
Each Wednesday I plan on checking in here and letting my blog readers know my progress for the week and if I met my goals.
My goals for this week:
· Train for the 5K at least four days.
· Track my calories on the My Fitness Pal app on my phone.
· Drink 8-10 glasses of water.
If any other bloggers want to join in on Weigh In Wednesdays let me know. Even if you only have ten pounds to lose I think having others encourage you helps. Maybe we can make a challenge of some sort and we will have prizes (maybe weekly if we get enough people involved) for the challenge winner.
