I realised it's been a wee while since I last posted about how the Couch to 5K was going!
In all honesty things are going slowly. Since the time change we've been having to run in the dark and I absolutely hated it. I couldn't concentrate on running and keeping a steady rhythm as I was too worried about my surroundings and the people around me. I felt unsafe.
So now we are running once at the weekend in the day light. We are still doing the Couch to 5k, just not 3 times a week. It's a shame as we are practically at the end of it but I feel a lot happier and safer when I run now. I can now almost do 25 minutes of constant running! It's an amazing feeling once it is done but whilst your doing it you have to let your mind wonder. If you don't you are always thinking about how much you hurt!
To keep fit we are also doing Jillian Michaels 6-week six pack. It's definitely not as intense as the 30 day shred was but so far it seems good. Again we haven't followed it completely 100%, missing the odd day here and there. I'm hoping we get our act together and do it each day as I fear festive treats will soon get the better of me!
Weight wise I don't reckon that I have lost much, if at all recently. Myself and others noticed that I had lost weight when we first started running, but nothing seems to have changed these past few weeks. Doing less of it probably doesn't help!
Anyway when we reach the end of the Couch to 5K i'll definitely share an overall review..so keep your eyes peeled if you are interested!
