So I completed couch to 5k a couple of years ago, I loved it, and it helped me to lose weight and tone up. Then life happened, obvs, and I have gained back some weight and definitely lost some tone!!
I recently got made redundant, and I now have FOUR MONTHS off of work. With FULL PAY. So, I joined a local gym and made a decision to use this time wisely and get my body to a better place.
I did my first run yesterday W1R1, and did a work out after (designed by my gym instructor when I joined) and it was really great!
I forgot how good running could be for me mentally, and I still went even though I was really tired and it perked me right up
It was also a lot of fun 'playing on the machines' as I call it in my head, when in reality I was just working out. A little bit of an ache today, but nothing painful.
Is anyone else getting back on the wagon? Is it harder 2nd time round or easier?
Does anyone else have experience of combining couch to 5k with other exercise regimes, because I am thinking of also taking up yoga (never seen a miserable person who does yoga)?
