Just another WordPress.com site

Well it started the other night.

I was reading blogs when stumbled across mummamayhem who is training to loose her post baby jelly bum and do a 5k run… so for a tool to help her she downloaded an app to get her to 5km in 8 weeks.

So I downloaded it too! I figured I cant be that fat or unfit that I couldnt learn to run 5km in 8 weeks. 8 Weeks is like 2 months. Sure I can.

Week 1, Day 1 = Brisk 5 min warm up walk, then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for 20mins.

Yep not for me! I couldnt even run for the 60 seconds!!

Then my man and I had a romantic getaway, and while we were childless we did a lot of talking (imagine that!) and decided that we would get fit together and get skinny for our trip home at christmas time…

We were in the city shopping and I found a book called Run fat b!tch Run. I figured thats what I need! I think this book is going to be my live saver!! I laughed my way through it and then as the Grit doctor would say, I got cracking.

There is 3 main points the author Ruth Field tries to get across when it comes to fitness and weight loss:

  1. Drink more water
  2. Eat less crap
  3. And run

It was a very enlightening book. No diets, no fluffy crap about working out to a specific regime, just get out your front door and run.

Im loving it!! Ive gone from dying at running for 60 seconds to keeping up a jog for just over 2 mins in a week. Im thinking in around 6 months I will be lighter and run for about 20 mins!!

Wahoo fitness here I come!
