Couch to 5k – Final Week!

I did it!!!!! I’m so happy that I’ve actually stuck this one out and finished the training plan :)
I won’t lie – this last week has been tough, my body’s found the longer runs hard going. But I’ve kept going and pushed through. I do feel so much better for regular excercies. The difference it makes is amazing. Plus I never thought I’d actually look forward to a workout, or make the time to fit one in!!

This is certainly something that I want to continue. It has become habit now – get up, run! I’m intending now to alternate doing a long run with some interval training. At first I found it hard to stay focused on the long runs, but now I’ve found that if I let my mind wander, I get caught up in thinking about new creative ideas that I don’t notice how long I’m running for!!!

Final Measurements:
Waist: 26″ (2″ lost)
Hips: 35″ (2″ lost)
Thighs: 18″ (1″ lost)
Right now – I’m off for an extra run!!!

    Congrats! How exciting! 

    Something you might also try on rainy days is Shaun T’s Beachbody Insanity workout videos.  You don’t need any equipment – but it really keeps you in shape!!
