I have to be honest here, this 5K has really kicked our fitness into high gear. Not that being curvy isnt fabulous but we'd like to be curvy and still be healthy. We want to encourage you all to take a step for your health. Whether its walking 30 minutes around your neighborhood or taking that Zumba class or even downloading workouts online for free. We love Blogilates. (Seriously, Cassey really knows what she's doing!).
I tend to ramble but yes running. I have a love/hate relationship with running because I'm still a beginner runner and sometimes running for more than 5 minutes is exhausting. I'm training my body right now for this 5K and the wrong running shoes lead to pain in my legs. I suppose this is sort of a review but I purchased these Under Armour Go Running Shoes.
And I LOVE them! They give me the right support where I need it and shock support which is crucial because you don't want to damage your joints. They give me a spring in my step, its bouncy and I like it. Whooo!
If you want to start running remember to invest in good running shoes, even if takes trying on 11 pairs and running around the store. Which I totally did!
Also, remember to start slow. Walk for 5 minutes then run for 1 minute, walk for 1 minute. Wash, rinse and repeat. Do this for a total of 30 minutes. This technique has helped my running and I hope it helps yours!
