Get in Shape With a Couch to 5K Program
Getting in shape (and the motivation to exercise, period) is no easy feat. For many, there is always an excuse as to why today is NOT the day to throw on the old sneakers and hit the gym. So why not create an excuse—an achievable goal—for why today IS the day to get in shape?
How about setting a goal to run a 5K (3.1 miles)? Although it may seem impossible now, with a can-do attitude and training plan, anyone can get in tip top running shape and cross the 5K finish line with energy to spare. A great plan to follow is Cool Running's Couch-to-5K Running Program. Not only does it provide a day-by-day running schedule that has helped thousands of people run three miles in just two months, the program also has a Facebook fan page for discussion and inspiration from other former couch potatoes sharing their accomplishments. Signing up is the first step, so check out Active.com for running races near you!
At the end of the program, not only will you be a healthier person, you'll realize that there's really nothing you can't do.
