Hey guys! I haven’t said this on my blog yet but I used to love running. What do you mean by “used to”? You might ask? I believe from 2011-2013 I have joined 5k runs during the fall and spring. I’ve joined the Mississauga 5k run, Toronto waterfront 5k run and CIBC Run for the cure. I never really liked training for it but the actual run was fun haha. The reason why I stopped training/running in general is because I hurt my ankle pretty bad during the summer of 2013. After the incident I knew I couldn’t run for a while. Then a while became a year. Then a year became 3… oops. Instead, I get my cardio from biking, the elliptical and occasionally on the treadmill.
After 3 years, I think it’s time to start running again. Since I haven’t ran at a long distance for a while, I would have to train as if it was my very first time. Back then I would of hoped to run a marathon by now. But that’s what happens when you fall down… you get back up and start again.
With that said, I have decided to join the Mississauga 5k run this April! I searched online for a training plan and saw this one from Popsugar:
Seems doable right? Considering that this plan is only 6 weeks I decided to double up the weeks (Week 1 for 2 weeks, Week 2 for 2 weeks…) Let’s do this!
What are your fitness goals for 2016? What kind of cardio do you prefer?
