Running a 5k after being pregnant
A few months ago, I organized my first contest. Fortunately, the winner was a blogger: Catherine, from “The diary of C.P”. She loves to run but, at that moment, she was having a hard time completing a 5k. If you want to know more about her, make sure to visit her blog and follow her journey.
It was a pleasure for me to help her, and today I am delighted to share her testimony with you:
“I had the great opportunity to work with CHAPE through a giveaway. That was a gift for the virtual being and help you achieve your goal of a duration of 12 weeks. In which we work different things, such as my diet, what I ate and the amount. My goal was to lose weight but the main one was to run and with that achieve a 5k race without stopping, which with the help of him as a coach was excellent in many aspects. He gave me tasks to perform and what I should do and what not.
Also, he told me the best of what I want to achieve and the steps to do it. If at any moment I had doubts or questions, his availability always was on point 100%. The distance from different countries was not an impediment and the flexibility worked incredibly for me. He was always there to give me advice, even give me encouragement when I thought I was not giving my maximum or best.
The system he used to communicate and send notes with the data for me was totally new but I adapt the fast because it is quite easy to use. I liked the system he uses because everything was organized by dates and themes and they always were there for reference. Because of my availability, we always chatted one day a week that’s where doubts and questions were exposed and always there he was with his greater knowledge to help.
Actually, it is a pleasure to have this opportunity and through his work to know a little about the person. He was always very professional and respectful. With his help during my training, I lose weight and most important I achieve my goal. He is part of my achievement, he was not physically there, but he was virtually helping me to focus and work on areas to achieve it. My satisfaction with his performance as a trainer is excellent. I recommend his work”.
It is always inspirational to read about other people’s efforts to keep up with a healthy diet and a powerful fitness routine. When reading these exploits I feel stronger and more determined. I will write more in a future post. Nevertheless I am not much of a runner, just cyclist and roller skater, but I maintain a posed fitness routine and a diet.
Of course, please do 🙂
Thank you so much, Iulia 😀
I’m looking forward to reading your post!
I tried roller skating when I was a kid, but I was really, really bad at it 😅😅
No worries then, I will organize a new contest soon 😉
