Hi everyone! Im sort of new to running as its been several years. Prior to having kids i shed 50 pounds with running and felt so healthy and happy. Now 2 kids later i am overweight (196lbs) and unhealthy. My goal is to run a 5k in september and my challenge is going to be finding the time to consistently run. My 2 year old and 3 month old keep me busy, but i know there are people that are busier than me that do it my other challenge will be getting over my self consciousness while running... i feel like every part of my body is jiggling and bouncing with each step but i suppose that will get better the more i run and the more weight i lose! Looking foreward to getting to know the people in this community!
I just completed Day 1 of C25K today and I know exactly how you feel. I was so glad there was no one around early this morning to see my body jiggling and bouncing, it made me feel so self conscious, but I am hoping it gets better each and every day. Good luck and if you find out about any tips or suggestions, please let me know!
