So I have been running fairly consistently for about 10 months I started last January in order to find a new one to get in shape for my wedding in August, I had always hated running when I was younger, I played sports I was very active and in shape, but ask me to run two miles straight forget it!
Friends from high school still joke about the time our senior year of high school our volleyball coach decided we needed to start every practice with a 2 mile run and I looked like I was dying EVERYDAY! So for me to set out and start running on my own, —-> A very big deal.
But it worked, we live 2 blocks from a park I could get up and run anywhere between 1 mile and 3 miles all in the park and be happy, I didn’t get very fast but I was getting somewhere. Then my wedding happened, it was glorious and wonderful, we ran a 5k that week and I felt like I was looking good, feeling good, in much better shape than I had been 10 month ago, but after the wedding we were in our happily married bliss and I stopped going on runs consistently we spent a week, ruining our clean eating in Mexico and it was harder to get back into it when we got home.
This last month I have noticed my husband really getting into it, and you know what, I want to too! I loved the way running made me feel, not during the run that still feels like dying but afterwords I felt strong, accomplished, like a runner, something I never thought I would be.
So on my HORRiBLE run today, ( I set out to run 3 miles I only got through a mile and a half) I decided I was going to run a 10k probably next Spring, hopefully by May. So here it goes, I have to run 2 5k’s for different reasons in November and by next May I will be running 6.2 miles I have decided, and once it is decided it is done, right?
So I downloaded the 5k to 10k app, and I will listen to the little trainer in my ear tell me when to walk and when to run and I will keep putting one foot in front of the other until I can run for 60 minutes straight like the little trainer wants me to!
So here I come #CardioQueen!
