I’m the type of chick that has always struggled maintaining a consistent exercise regimen. Start. Stop. Start. Get hyped. Stop. Do you get the picture? It’s exhausting!
So a few months ago, when my friend told me about the Couch to 5K program that trains you to run 3.1 miles over eight weeks I was intrigued and downloaded the free app. I started training right away and it lasted for about two weeks and then I gave up because I lack dedication (start. stop. cyclical behavior gets old). However, three weeks ago, I picked up the app again and with an accountability partner, have been training more regularly.
I love this program because it eases you into exercise while building endurance and discipline. I’ve found I enjoy exercise; I just lack the discipline in my life to make it a habit. The Couch to 5K program is designed to build on your weaknesses by turning them into to strengths. (Check out the website
for more details). LOVE!
There are so many ways to get started with C25K. You can print a schedule, memorize it, etc, but I highly recommend the free app because it helps you keep time and allows you to listen to music while training. It’s fantastic.
If you are looking for a way to incorporate exercise into your world and want to start slow, get this app and get off the couch. Seriously. You can thank me later!
Wow guys, it’s quiet around here… While you wait for me to produce some sort of content/ramblings, at least listen to some good music!
I’m currently obsessed with Grace Potter & The Nocturnals.
I’ve been a fan since for a while (you might even recognize the above track).
