Couch to 5K

One step forward, two steps back - but I'm Not Giving Up!

One step forward, two steps back - but I'm Not Giving Up!

So I graduated on the first Friday of December, and hurt my back on the the first Saturday of December. First my middle back, then I had a fall (and had actual whiplash, and exTremely sore tailbone - walking was difficult), then hurt my lower back... blah blah blah.... So exactly a month to the day, I'm back on the treadmill, and I decided to ease back with week 3. Lemme just say - it was a good idea.

I read some place that signing up for a 5k was a great motivator. I did, and it's true!! I'm running the 5k through High Park in Toronto April 8th raising money for paediatric cancer research. Sooo excited - even if I do have to pay for my own finishers medal! lol

I bet you 5 that it would have been a longer recovery time if I hadn't been in better-than-I-was kind of shape... All good. This morning was a challenge, but it feels sooo good to be back!! xo

Well done for getting back into it and ambitious 5K run !
