couch to 5k
i won’t even go into why i haven’t been here
other than i have been extremely busy with some things…and sedentary with other things
as you can imagine
i am tired of excuses.
not that i am not busy…because i am…
i’ve been struggling to find the time to go to the gym
you know, the one that is two seconds away from my home.
but the truth is…
wait for it…
i don’t like the gym.
the gym feels like a chore.
it doesn’t thrill me or excite me
it makes me dread working out.
i realized i was happiest working out at home or going for my long 5k walks
i realized i am introverted even in my work outs.
i just want to be alone.
i wanted to do something different than just walk…
i enjoy walking but i wanted to push myself more
wanted to burn more calories and feel my body burn
call me weird…but i love that feeling
so i started to run.
if you haven’t read my blog before let me fill you in on why this is a huge deal.
i stopped running many many years ago
dare i say 20?
i used to run.
all the time.
i would wake up at a god awful hour in the morning and go for a run
i loved it.
then i got hit by a car…and it was game over.
i never attempted running again, only because i have been terrified.
see, even sprinting across the street can cause my ankles to lock and make me fall flat on my face.
but something told me to try.
and i did.
i was completely overwhelmed…
it felt amazing, i felt amazing…
am i outta shape? my god yes.
but not for long
and hey, i have yet to fall on my face (give it time, it’s bound to happen…and i am sure in front of a huge crowd of people, cause that’s how i roll)
i have this awesome app on my phone that tells me what to do
when to run and when to walk
i play my awesome music that makes me want to move
i am alone…in my head…
and on my way to getting fit
i can’t walk right now
i can’t get up off the couch without groaning
but it’s a good pain.
a great pain actually.
i can’t wait to get out there again.
i think i found my mojo!
