So this is going to be an introduction to my schedule, my future progress, and to date stats.

Well to introduce myself, my name is Danielle, i'm 22 and i live in Essex. I have a son who is now 8 months old so i work around him, and i have recently entered myself into a 5 mile marathon to push myself to get fit (because i don't want to look like an idiot lol).

I am one of those people who tries all kinds of diet and always trying to lose weight, yet always gives up. I looove my food, so i cave in to eat what i want quickly lol. I am also lazy (if I'm honest lol) so doing exercise requires a huge amount of effort.

Before my son was born i was a regular gym member, i have also been to Slimming world, done a week on the Insanity programme. However this year i joined a bootcamp to which i go twice a week for an hour, its high interval training like Insanity, so far i've been to two classes and i have another one tomorrow.

I have planned my workouts as the following (which will be active as of tomorrow lool);
Monday: bootcamp
Tuesday: Insanity dvd and crosstrainer
Wednesday: Slim in 6 dvd and crosstrainer
Thursday: Insanity and crosstrainer/jog
Friday: Jog and crosstrainer
Saturday: bootcamp and jog
Sunday: reeeeessssst

Now the plan is great its just sticking to it, which is why i wanted a motivational buddy. The bootcamps will happen its just the home ones i worry about.

Wish me luck :)

    Just to clarify, 5 miles is not a marathon. :) A marathon is actually 26.2 miles! Not where a beginner wants to start out. :) Are you talking about a 5k? That's 5 kilometers, not miles.. it's actually 3.1 miles! That's a very good beginning goal!

I would also recommend not running on consecutive days. Particularly when you're starting out, you need to have a day between runs to allow your muscles and skeletal system to recover and heal. I'd suggest checking out a good Couch to 5k training program.

Remember, this isn't all or nothing... too much can be just as damaging as too little! You have a lot of very intense workouts on your schedule, and no strength training. I would strongly suggest you post your routine/schedule on the fitness forum for advice on finding balance!
