Up until now, we have mainly been watching what we eat and doing some exercising, mainly riding the exercise bike and walking. This has been pretty successful and I am down almost 38 lbs from January. D is down about 30 lbs. Woo hoo! Seeing the scale slowly move downward has been a positive thing.
However, now it is time to step it up a notch and really get serious about the exercise thing. So we have started Couch to 5K or C25K as it is often called. It claims to get you ready to run a 5K in 9 weeks. We will see if that actually happens. I haven't run any real distance in almost 10 years. So this is the first in a series to let you all know how it goes.
We do have an end goal to our training. A Zombie Dash at the end of October. We thought we would celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary by running from zombies. (we are so romantic!)
I will be updating weekly on our progress. So far week one has been a success, we have 2 runs under our belt with the third planned for Saturday. Willow and Cricket join us and seem to love getting out and moving a little faster and further than our usual walks.
In case you want to start your own C25K program. I copied it from the Cool Runnings website.
