Back at My Happiness Project

I am back on the treadmill this week (I refuse to run in snow and this is what I woke up to on Monday which was Day 1).


I am doing a couch to 5 km program. I found a free app on my phone that seems to be good called C25K FREE if you are interested in joining me. I definitely have some work to do in order to get into shape. It starts with running 1 minute and walking 1.5 minutes and at 8 weeks has you running 5 km. I walked slow and jogged slow and still had to stop a couple of time to catch my breath on Day 1!  I am glad I am back at it. I like being in good shape, especially when it comes to running around with Calder!

I would eventually like to run in a 5 km race. I'm not sure when I will get my act together and enter one. I will be done the program at the end of June, but I don't want to enter a run during the summer. This is partly due to the summer being busy, but I also want to be able to more than just complete a 5 km race. I want to be able to job at a pace I am proud of. I am thinking about making my goal to run a race in the fall. If you know of any good ones around Saskatoon, I would love to hear about them!

  4. I am trying to do the same Jordan! I hate running to begin with but I am going to do the Color Me Rad run in September i hope! Throw me in a sport and I can run forever but to just run, I hate it!!! I believe I tried the App you are using but found it went from running 6 minutes or so to running 20 mins in a matter of 1 week!! Hope yours is better!
