First day of the Couch to 5k Challenge.
I know that this isn't for everyone, each of us has our own levels of fitness, and should go to the doctor before starting a program-but for me....this is going to be AWESOME!. In about an hour I will be on that treadmill, and to be honest, I am completely pumped! Have you ever looked at exercise that way? With excitement?
Music playing, working yourself at your own level, seeing improvements every time you step on to the treadmill. That's the best part, I think....the improvements that happen when you take the initiative to begin.
My fitness level today, won't be the same next week. The Couch to 5k outline it for you. It's pretty cool the way it lays it all out. The goal is a 5k at the end. (If you're competitive) Otherwise, the weight loss, increased energy, and new found confidence might be enough :)
Remember to check with your doctor before beginning an exercise program, I did. Here is the link to the Couch to 5K Plan: http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml
