Runnnnn Kristen, Runnnn!

UPDATE:

Since I am a proud C25K graduate, I have changed the name of this page from “C25K – Runnnnn Kristen, Runnnn!” by dropping the “C25K” part. We’re moving on!!! I have decided to now follow the OHR (One Hour Runner) program. It is ten weeks long and builds from 30 minutes to 60 minutes. Yay! I shall start this week. 😀

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, needing to incorporate exercise into my WLJ, I have decided to start doing C25K. A lot of the wonderful ladies over on the WW 20’s board have said how wonderful the program is, and so I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon!

Being really overweight, and not having done any regular exercise for quite some time, I’m going to start off slow and probably do the first few weeks a few times.

So, here’s my training schedule to start. I’ll modify it if it’s too easy or too hard. But we’ll start off slow, and go from there :D.

    I cannot wait until the weather gets warmer, or we have a bit more money in a bank so I can get a gym membership again. I tried one day of C25K and absolutely loved it (I played field hockey in HS so I’m used to jogging & running). Good luck!!
