This time a year ago I was preparing for my wedding. I was 5 foot 2 and 8 and a half stone. I simply wanted to tone up, and get a little fitter for my wedding in August. Well couch to 5k and the lovely Laura helped me out so, so much. I wrote posts on this amazing forum and was so pleased when, during the Worthing 5k Race For Life, I ran my first ever 5k in 35 minutes.
Since then, I have run a 10k and a 6.4k race but done little training. It is a few months until my first wedding anniversary and I've put on a stone and have not run properly in ages.
So, weighing in at 9 and a half stone and still 5 foot 2, I am on a mission before the summer to drop to 8 stone and again run the Worthing Race for Life. In order to achieve this, I have restarted C25K but this year I am combining it with Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. A programme which combines strength, cardio and abs work in 20mins daily workouts. It's hardcore but the results are there to see online after a little search on google or Pinterest.
Last year I started c25k at week 3 because I knew I would be able to do it. This year I'm starting at week 4. In fact, I've complete 5 sessions of week 4 and now I'm ready for week 5. I'm hoping that posting this and other posts will help give me the motivation and accountability to see this through ready for 14th July (Race for Life Day) and reaching my goals!
