Am I a Runner?
Thursday, September 27, 2012
I have always wanted to run but never thought I could do it. Back when I was a smoker, I could not even run around the block without losing my breath. I have not smoked in over 10 years, and even though I am heavier, I am in much better physical shape. So, over the last couple of years, I have tried to run.....but... it's hard!
Since joining SP, I have recommitted myself to becoming a runner!!
I have signed up for the virtual 5K Trick or Treat Trot
I have purchase new awesome running shoes
I am trying to run 2 - 3 days a week on my treadmill
So far, I can run 5K in about 38 minutes
Every time I run 5K, I am proud of myself. Every time I run, I push myself to keep going even when that little voice says to stop or slow down..... I keep telling that little voice in my head that I am a runner!!
My next test is to take my running outside. I know that will be challenging for me both physically, and mentally....... My ultimate goal is to run in an actual 5K race!
