Change for life - Week 2

Over the summer I was challenged to get more active and join the Couch to 5k Plan. To help me stay on track I am documenting my progress on my blog for everyone to see!

I think the second week of any new thing is always the hardest. Starting something is easy, its sticking with it that's difficult. Although I have the best intentions I am often guilt of not finishing things off! My room is full of half finished projects and material bought for a specific job that I've never gotten around to getting done. 

Running for me is worse than all of those things, so its amazing that I managed to get to week 2 at all. A friend at work joined me for week 2 and I think that really helped motivate me to keep going. If you are thinking of taking up the couch to 5k challenge I would highly recommend a buddy! I am chuffed that I finished it!

 Something that isn't appreciating the effort to get fit... My KNEES!!! Let me tell you, climbing stairs is not a pleasant activity and neither is sitting down or standing up. Which density decided would be the most suitable activities for me this week! 

I did as anyone would do, I googled what to do about it and moaned to my colleagues. The RICE method was recommended to me by a number of people along with the change for life website. 
RICE stands for:

I'm still undecided whether it makes any difference or not but I'm sticking with it for now!

So I have now completed 6 runs and feeling quite proud of myself. Only 7 more weeks to finish and I will hopefully be running 5k. 

Wish me Luck!
