My project was difficult to continually add my research to my Scoop.it page, so I created a log of all of the times I exercised and details on what activities I did so that you could see exactly how I spent my time "researching" and what my project ended up being. I am so proud that I actually accomplished my goal of running a 5K. Hopefully this is helpful in seeing the training routine that worked for me and hopefully it will work for you too!

This article was great affirmation for me in reminding me why I'm doing the project that I am. We all know that living a healthy lifestyle has benefits, but I wasn't aware of just how much healthy choices can impact your life. Even some good choices are better than none.
If you need help sticking to your diet and a workout schedule, your smartphone is a great fitness tool with or without apps.

In three months, you could run a 5K even if you have never run in your life.
If you are otherwise healthy, 12 weeks of training is all you need in order to make that 5K not just doable but enjoyable, says Bill Pierce, co-author of “Run Less Run Faster” and a longtime marathoner.

This video was extremely helpful in teaching me the do's and don'ts of running! It saved me from quite a few petty injuries that could have developed into things much more serious had I not taken care of them. Many times, beginning runners experience lots of aches and pains because they aren't using proper running form or technique and taking the time to watch this video saved me from all of those things.
Caution!! As with anything else, too much can be detrimental to your well-being. This article gives warning of high-intensity workouts and how to avoid major health issues that could be sparked by too much exercise at a high level. As much as I want to incorporate working out into my daily routine, I know that I have an "all or nothing" personality and this article was extremely resourceful when it comes to setting healthy boundaries and knowing how to properly take care of myself.
This is written from the perspective of somebody that believes you can truly accomplish anything. The pure optimism of the article is enough to be of value to me, but it also has steps to follow in order to help you follow through with your fitness goals.
"Over the years I’ve grown to love exercising in the morning. It frees up my evenings, leaves me fewer excuses for skipping out on a workout, and helps me feel more alert throughout the day. Research shows morning workouts can also improve sleep, acuity, and productivity, as well as positively impact diet and exercise habits."
However, just because I love morning workouts doesn’t mean I leap out of bed at the sound of my alarm, eager to exercise every day. Even us morning people might find it tough to head out for a run before the sun rises or attend a 6AM burpee bootcamp. I’ve skipped my fair share of early workouts, but I’ve also gotten quite good at not skipping them too, thanks to a little strategic planning, preparation and positive thinking.
I find that it's difficult to find time in the evenings for me to work out, but waking up early in the mornings is difficult as well. This article is great because it gave me some tips on how to help get into a morning routine and motivate myself to get up and going with my day. I was able to get my workout in and make the most of my evenings.
Great tips for lifelong wellness. This is the ultimate goal of my CE Project - to inspire a motivation to live a healthier lifestyle. This article provides great insight on elements of my lifestyle that I can alter to help encourage greater lifestyle change for the better and how to carry it on for years to come.
