I completed day 3 of wk 5 on the Couch Potato to 5k program today. I had a difficult run on Wed and had trouble completing two 8 minute stretches with a 5 min slower interval between, but I went for it today. I covered my elliptical display so I wouldn't be focused on time and turned up my Podrunner c25k music up on my MP3 and just ran. It felt good. I haven't been this buzzed about exercise in a long time. I enjoy my exercise program but haven't been excited. Today I am excited. Can you tell?
If you want to increase endurance and fitness, try this program. You don't have to be training for a 5K (I'm not), you don't have to run outside. You can use a track, treadmill, or elliptical like me. It's all about personal fitness. AND I think its about having a goal. It has really given me something to focus on.
By the way, I take a Spinning class on Tuesdays and am going to start lap swimming every Thursday.
Fitness is Fun!
