Work in Progress of a different sort – Couch to 5k

Learnin to run

I’ve always thought running was a perfect fitness activity. Grab some shoes and go – what could be easier? But every time I’ve tried, I’ve burnt out pretty fast. Huffing and puffing, with a stitch in my side, it was miserable.

Thanks to the discovery of the “C25K” program, I’ve now completed my 2nd week of running regularly. It’s a walk/jog interval program and with the help of podcasts that signal when to change pace, I think I’ve found a way to get to that 5k.
