Restarting the 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program!

Sunday, May 26, 2013

I'm so excited! emoticon I've been trying to do this training program since January 2013 emoticon . I did week 1, day 1 with no problem, but since I didn't have proper running shoes emoticon , dropped out until I could afford to buy some. Wise decision no matter how badly I wanted to start jogging.

Since then, working out has been pretty much hit or miss. emoticon I have become bored with walking and lacked motivation to get out there. Been doing SparkVideos.

I was finally able to get a pair of running shoes at the beginning of May. Not being in the habit of exercise and not committing to a race, left too much wiggle room and I found myself skipping workouts. emoticon

I reset my program, signed up for a virtual 5K for the week of June 23 - 29 emoticon , set an appointment for myself for June 28 to do the race and joined the SparkTeam emoticon . I've committed to begin Monday, May 27 at 6:30 am. (tomorrow)I've made appointments with myself for MWF's for the next 5 weeks. emoticon T,Th,Sat's will be 30 minute strength training days emoticon and Sundays will be my rest days (that is until BLC22 starts up). I'm going to tell my husband of my plans as soon as he wakes up to hold myself accountable. Believe me, he WILL bug me about this emoticon ! LOL. I've even bought some new workout clothes to help motivate myself - anything to see myself through this time. I'm tired of sitting on the sidelines.

So, there are my plans. I'm holding myself accountable to you and will continue to post my progress! Please feel free to check up on me if you like. I'd really like a virtual workout buddy! emoticon Anyone interested?
