I heard about this c25k thing a few weeks ago and I wanted to try it. The idea is you take people like me – easily frustrated, hate working out, and completely out of shape, and in 9 weeks, they’re running 5 kilometers (or about 30 full minutes.)
So far I’ve completed 2 days and it’s amazing. You alternate running and walking and me and my doggie run together, and I can actually do it! I downloaded one of the c25k apps for my itouch (it announces when to switch, but it still lets you listen to your own music while you go, which is a big plus.)
I really struggle with self image… I guess a lot of us girls do. But I either attempt some obsessive diet for a few days, or else eat tons of junk food. My husband is extremely encouraging and always tells me that I’m his beautiful girl, but I still struggle. The great thing about this running thing is that I feel so sore and SO GOOD when I get home. It helps my attitude, it helps my hormones and it helps my self image.
