Couch to 5k

Recommended Posts

Ok, so here is my update so far. I will finish week 4 today and man this is getting harder every day it seems. I say that it is getting harder, but I am quite obviously getting stonger. Every run for the last week I have bested myself, by coming out with my best pace and distance after every single run! It surprises me every time because I feel like I'm dying, but I must be doing something right!

 

@Tlseege I can totally see why weeks 4 and 5 are the quitting weeks, I don't know that I would be able to continue without the support of my husband. He is very motivational, which is something that kind of surprised me. But he refuses to quit, and I refuse to quit so I guess I will just keep running! lol

 

Sadly, I'm not losing any weight on this journey which is upsetting and I haven't quite figured it out. I know that my body is going through a lot of changes (I've stopped taking bc) and that is the only thing I can really attribute to me not being able to lose weight. Well, I will update again later!

Great job!!!!  Keep up the good work, you're doing great!

 

it's so awesome that your fiance is so supportive and you have an end goal already paid for to look forward to.  Now just keep running! :)


As for weight loss... this isn't the program to lose weight with.  You're building a lot of muscles and you won't lose weight.  If in the end you can go for 3 mile runs 3 times a week, then perhaps you will. However you will not (typically) lose weight during the training.

Thanks tlseege!

 

Ok, time for my weekly update! I finish week 5 tomorrow, which means..... I have the 20min run tomorrow! :( Not at all looking forward to it, so I'm not going for time or distance just going for completion, lol! As long as I can finish it, I will be happy with that. I've been wanting to supplement the running with something else, so I started the shrinkingjeans.net Oh My Thighs! workout along with this. It is pretty simple, but I can definitely feel it.

 

On top of all that, I've started to take weekly measurements. I figure that if I can't find motivation in losing weight, maybe I can find it in seeing my measurements deacrease. It's just killing me because I've been sooo good at my diet, and not cheating but I'm not seeing results. My husband on the other hand cheats all the time and is down 30 lbs.

Ok, so due to some INSANE weather where I live we haven't been able to start week 6.... until tonight :) Last week we ended up re-running week 5 because we were falling behind in our schedule and then Tuesday this week we re-ran Week 5 Day 3, so now we will officially begin Week 6. Also, I have officially signed up for a 5k exactly one month from today! I'm super nervous to be commited to something, but super excited at the same time :) Wish me luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
