Fiona’s journey from couch to 5k!

Fiona Morgan from Very Delicious gives us her take on the Couch to 5k programme

I’ve never ever been a runner ever!  I hate cross country at school and did the bare minimum.  I have always swam so was pretty fit until 2005 when I stopped working for the council and so didn’t get to swim/go to the gym for free!! Yikes now writing this I realise it’s been 6 years!!!  Eeek. I saw the couch to 5k podcasts on the Revitalize Fitness blog so I thought I’d give it a try.

Running my own cafe and catering companymeans I struggle to find time to exercise so i’m hoping these podcasts will be easy and fun to fit in to my current lifestyle.  Last night I went on the Wii and my BMI is 20.79 so this is solely about fitness and not weight loss at all.  Adverts about exercise are generally aimed at losing weight and are missing out on a great target market of people who aren’t overweight but still don’t exercise.It’s only day one so a long way to go but I already found myself getting into it.  The music is shocking though and not very motivating but I suppose you can’t win them all.  Will see what the next podcast brings!
