This weeks question: What are your New Year Resolutions? Or, what goals have you set for yourself in 2013.
Let’s Talk is a fun new meme to discuss a little bit of this & a little bit of that (not always bookish) hosted by Smash Attack Reads and A Book Obsession.
I don’t really like to make resolutions. I usually don’t follow through and feel like a failure. This year I’m going to though.
My goal is to run a 5K by the end of 2013. Really my goal is to endure any type of cardio activity for 30 minutes without wheezing to death but a friend sent me the app for The Couch-to-5K Running Plan. It alternates walking and running – increasing the running time over 9 weeks. I’m up to week 3 already and it is getting easier. I still wheeze and gasp but I finish each workout (without cheating) and my recovery time is getting faster.
I’m a fairly healthy person. I eat well and I’m active but for some reason my cardio endurance sucks! I have an elliptical machine and getting to 10 minutes kills me. I really want to be able to do this.
How about you? Any goals or resolutions for the new year?
