You may also remember that I’ve recently been chosen to be a Shaklee 180 blogger but we all know that diet alone won’t drop the weight that you want as quickly as you would like. I need to get off the couch. I admit it, I hate exercise. I really, really do. I know that I’m not alone in this either. We have become an incredibly sedentary society and I am not going to pretend that I’m not also guilty. I have lots of excuses, though. Good ones, too. Ok, they’re good at the time but are really quite lame.
I have been thinking about starting the Couch to 5k program since I have a few friends that have done it and some of them are even as *ahem* athletic as I am! I’ve always wanted to get into running. I long to be one of those people who enjoys it and looks forward to a daily run. Our new house is right next to an open space with a trail and I think I’m going to do it. To keep myself motivated I would love to get a heart rate monitor like the Polar RCX 5 and become a real runner! One that looks forward to running. Maybe. I hope.
Have you tried Couch to 5k? Did it work for you and make you like, or at least tolerate running?
