Couch Potato to 5K
So if you have been reading my blog you may have seen that one of my goals is to run a 5K. Well, my friend Amanda called me last night and told me about this application she downloaded for her i-phone. It was called C25K (Couch potato to 5K), it is a 3 day a week, 9 week program that prepares you for a 5K, even if you are starting as a couch potato. It is intervals of walking and running with audio prompts telling you when to do what. She said it was awesome and that I should get it. So, I did.
I am going to continue to walk my 3.0 for 45 minutes certain days and then do this this 3 day a week program for the other days. It is progressive and gets harder every week. Now I just need to find a 5K. The problem is that in 9 weeks it will be July and I am not running a 5K in TN in July. I either need to find one in Idaho and go for a trip or it will have to wait until October!
I am excited to see how it goes. I will keep you posted. For those of you with I-phones you might check it out. It is $2.99 for the app. If you are interested in doing a 5K with me, let me know!
