So why am I doing this? Couch to 5K. Started twice and didn’t finish week 1 because
a) It’s hard to run with a laptop in your hands
b) It hurts.
The main problem is every time I make a concerted effort to get fit/lose weight I end up injured….mainly because I’m too heavy.
It’s not that I don’t get regular exercise; I swim, play golf, walk the dog twice a day, do pilates.
I even eat quite healthily – I’m vegetarian, usually cook from scratch, and yes I like the odd biscuit or eight and the occasional glass of vino or 3, but somehow I keep faltering. Hence the post.
So day 1 : Question 1.
How do you do couch to 5K without injuring yourself ? Well I think I may have solved this one I have a pristine, barely used, tiny trampoline.
Podcast downloaded to laptop and I’m set up ready to go. And finally I managed to finish. Really not sure if it has the same effect on a trampoline but my muscles are starting to ache. The main downside is you can’t really hear the music over the creaking of the springs. Let’s hope that in 9 weeks I’ll be ready to do park run without being sick and being unable to walk for 2 weeks afterwards…..like the first and only time I attempted it Has anyone else not got an ipod?
