In response to my last blog, a sparkbuddy wrote "You're a runner now!!!" You know I never considered myself a runner until I read that post. And the funny thing is that when I get up in the morning, I have been feeling like running even though it isn't my official running day. The C25K program has me running 3x a week and so I'm kind of reluctant to run more than that as I don't want to over train or get an injury. My guess is that I would be fine. If you are running, how often do you run?
I want to start adding other activities as well so that I can lose the weight faster and tone up at the same time. So far, I have lost 12.5 pounds and my legs feel a lot more toned, but I still need to remove a lot of fat on my tummy. My legs were never a big concern, so of course, that's where I get toned first....figures!
I am starting to feel stronger in my running, so that's a good thing. Although when I'm running my 30 minutes, those last few minutes are pretty hard. It's the heat and the sweat dripping in my face that bugs me the most. I really don't mind running besides the sweat...I guess I'm such a girl. :)
