So I made it to my fourth week of back to running. 4 weeks ago I downloaded the couch to 5K app and re dedicated myself to running. To be totally honest with you it’s been pretty awesome for me to see how far I’ve gotten with my running and now I’m able to get back on board with my endurance. I like that it starts you off with quick intervals and then gradually increases the time you run as you build endurance. For those of you wondering a 5k distance is 5 kilometers which is equal to 3.1 miles.
My husband decided to do the Couch to 5k and it’s a lot of fun that we both motivate one another. We use the app and make sure we start it at the same time even while he’s traveling he keeps up with it! So glad to be back to running!
Our goal race is on April 1st, it’s a local 5K that our friend is holding for her nonprofit organization Rage Against Addiction!
Have you ever tried a couch to 5k training program to run a 5k race? It’s a great way to start off slow and ease your way to running a full 5k.
