C25K & Weight Loss

For those who may not know, C2k5 means "couch to 5k". It's a program that pretty much trains you to go from being a couch potato, to being able to run a 5K.

I recently decided that I am going to sign up for a 5k this coming May and I'm going to use this program to help get me there. It's a nine week program that starts out with you running one minute intervals and works you all the way up to being able to run 30 mins straight.

Day 1 of this program will start tomorrow for me.. which, should be pretty interesting considering I'm battling a pretty nasty sinus infection at the moment. I'm not going to let that hold me back, I've downloaded some podcasts for some other people that used really great music (in my opinion) with little signals as to when you should walk and when you should run.

This program has also really helped people lose weight and I'm hoping I can see results with that as well.

So.. come May, I'm going to be participating in a 5k (and then eventually move up to a 10k and so forth)..

I may end up looking like this at the end....

...but dangit, I'm going to do it!

Also.. I forgot to do my "Lose Big Monday" update. I'm proud to say that during the Thanksgiving holiday I was able to stick with my diet and exercise (although, I had to miss 1 day at the gym because I was just too sick to function). And... this week I've lost 3 more pounds!!

So, my three week total brings me up to a total of 10 lbs lost! Heck yes!

I probably should have taken some before and after pictures.. but, I didn't. Oops.


  1. Great job! You're putting me to shame with the weight loss.

  2. Best of luck with the program! I know a lot of people who have really enjoyed the C25K program and saw great results with it.
