The name of this training program is called Couch to 5K (C25K). Basically it is a workout 3 times a week up to 9 weeks from 20 to 40 minutes long.
It us more of building up stamina. So for a person like me who hates walking up steps and it totally breathless exerting any energy at all I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could really make it to 5K.
I highly doubted it....but....on September 15, 2011 I finally ran 5K! It was the last week of the training. I have run another 5K and tonight I plan to run another 5K. Man! I can't believe I'm talking 5K!
It hasn't been easy but consistency and perseverance seriously pay. And I have also seen a huge difference it bring on my energy during the day at work. I don't feel so exhausted as I used to. I'm super patient with my students now...it does help it does.
Oh and it's fun. The runner's high is addictive!
