6 week challenge

I need to start getting serious about this 5K!  School is grades are posted so now there is nothing else to concentrate on but the 5K.  Also getting fit.  I gained more weight then I ever wanted to this past year :-(.  But I feel awesome changes are on the way!

What I have to make a good start:  

I figured of course I need some good running gear!
The very basics...running shoes, iphone holder, and a waist pocket thingy (not sure what to all it because it's not a fanny pack but same concept lol).   

I wanted another way to build up my endurance and get another workout on non-running days so I picked up a new bike! 
Nothing fancy but I did have to make a few adjustments.  I took it for a ride and came home in major tushy pain.  Sad day I know.  So I took the old seat off!!! 
This tiny thing was just not going to work :-( And got a more comfortable one
Much nicer for the bum!  So I think I'm better equipped then I was when I started!  Let the challenge begin!  I have 6 weeks until the race and about 14 until school starts again.  That should be plenty of time to meet most of my getting fit goals!  
Ill keep you updated on what Ive done each week!  And see how long it takes to meet my goals!  If you have an awesome workout plan let me know!  I'm always up for new ideas since I get bored pretty easy doing the same thing over and over.  
Until next time
