I completed week 9 today... 9 weeks ago this week I could barely get through running a min and walking 2. I dreaded week 2 and everything afterwards... knowing that at my weight I could not and probably should not run. I made no excuses.. I literally had blisters bleeding, shin splints strait from satan and my knees.. poor knees would ACHE all day. I could of made every excuse but instead I just turned on some music and tried to ignore the pain and eventually at week 5 I was completely pain free.
Now I am not fast by any terms, I could probably walk faster than I do run, my 5k today was pretty slow but I didnt have to push myself.. I felt great at mile one and even at mile 3. I am a super pro at breathing.. I could carry on a complete conversation without sounding like a mule. I have one month until my first timed 5k..everyone who has agreed to run with me.. well lets say I am the only one who has paid so who knows and who cares I am going to do this and I be amazed at myself!!
I had to take yesterday off from exercise... it was a bummer but Jett was puking. I literally laid with him and slept about all day...my body must of been beat!! I didnt eat well AT ALL, but I made whatever he wanted and helped myself too... oh well today is a new day!
I did not like the monday class I tried out.. it has way too many relays.. I found myself feeling as if I was 4 th grade gym class again! I also spent half of the class standing around waiting for my turn. It sucked.. Ill give it one more try though before I give it up. I loved Monday night yoga since there was no one in there but me, 3 girls and one person that I consider my only enemy on this earth. I knew I was in her terroritory since she goes at nights...
but when have I ever followed the rules? As a new Christian I should forgive her and honestly if she talked to me I would but I still am stubborn.
So tonight I plan to walk at the mall and then go to a sculates class for an hour. I am down to almost "game time"!!!
