Try-it Thursday_Add a New Exercise
Thursdays are all about adding something new to your exercise mix. Last April, I tried running. I had never ran before, but for some reason after giving birth to my son, I needed to run. In the past, I had excuses like my feet would hurt or my asthma would slow me down. I was a gym girl. I lifted weights, did the elliptical and only walked on the treadmill.
I guess after giving birth naturally to two tough and tumble boys; you believe you can accomplish anything. So I used an app that coached me on running, and you know what? I ran my first 5k in June. I caught the running bug, and I’m so glad that I tried. Besides having an awesome feeling of accomplishment, running is very beneficial to your body. I was able to lose all the baby weight and some extra pounds too, tightened and toned my butt and legs and abs, and I can fit into my skinny jeans.
Have you ever wanted to try running, but didn’t know where to start? There is an excellent program in the Triangle geared towards moms on all levels- Raleigh Running Mamas. They offer a two-month training session to get you ready for a 5k or 10k. For more information about the program and to sign-up visit Raleigh Running Mamas training.
One of the best ways to motivate yourself about running is to have a goal in sight. My goal was to run a 5k. What is your fitness goal?
