I started running again last year to prepare for a 5K (which I ran!
). Except, after my 5K, I lost a lot of motivation to keep running. As of April 1st, I've restarted Couch to 5K
to kickstart my motivation and give me guidelines for running. And, as much as I love running, running can't be my only activity.
Couch to 5K suggests you run 3 days a week. And, I've been supplementing the OFF days by walking.
In addition to running and walking, I want to incorporate more activities in my life. My boyfriend suggested we go to the rock climbing gym. I mentioned hiking.
I love running and I love being active - I always feel so much better. However, I feel like I need to work harder at it for it to really become a part of my life. If that makes any sense.
1) Finish Couch to 5K. I know I've ran a 5K, but I never finished the running program and I feel like by actually finishing, my time would be so much better.
2) Gym Membership. It's expensive, but I think it's worth it to do some strength training. And, I could run in the middle of the day without dying of heat stroke.
3) Do More Activities With My Boyfriend. I'm going to set the goal for this at two things a month. I think that's totally doable.
4) Keep a Log. I want to keep a log of everything I'm doing. I'm using EverNote.
Do you have any ideas for activities I can do? Any tips? Let me know in the comments! I'll be checking back in on this quest in a month. Wish me luck!
