Prashanti went on to run a 10k within 3 months of taking her first step in the world of running.
Despite being a mom of two, Prashanti took the initiative in November 2019 to change her lifestyle for the better. She enrolled in Sport Shack and start out with easy 1 km jogs with recovery breaks.
She trained consistently and slowly but steadily went on to run her first 5k in December. She felt great after the run and was hungry for more. She continued to train religiously, and within 3 months went on run 10k at the Pune Women's Half Marathon in Pune.
Here's what she had to say about her 3 month journey:
"I never ran before joining Sport Shack not even 1 km. Was always busy with my daily routine and with my two kids.
I never thought I would be able to run 10 km and now I’m confident to run a 21 km sometime soon. All this has been possible only with the help of Sport Shack training sessions where individual attention is given to each member. Though we attend a group session, the training is supervised at one’s fitness level & the sessions are designed as per individual paces.
It is the most amazing hour of the day and now i enjoy running along with my strengthening sessions. My overall fitness has definitely improved.
In just 3 months I’ve gone from running 0 to 10 km comfortably without any hassle. When I look back and see how far I have come, I would’ve never imagined that in my late thirties, I would be a runner. It boosted my confidence levels and within 3 months I managed to lose 7 kg weight too.
Last but not the least, thanks to the Sport Shack team for always encouraging me. I hope to continue with this lifestyle for the rest of my life.”
Often times it's just our inability to take the first step that keep us from achieving our goals. We all have big dreams and we tend to get overwhelmed by them, so we don't even get started. Running a 10k for Prashanti started with that single step which she took in November. So break your goals down, and take that first step. You'll be surprised at what you can achieve by just putting one foot ahead of the other.
