I want to be a "runner"
Sunday, March 10, 2013
Seems like everyone losing weight does it by jogging or running. I don't mean a little jog , just ask a "runner" just how much they run and it always ends up being something that seems so ridiculous like, " oh, I only run 10 miles every morning at 5 am". Seriously, I envy this people because I don't want to wake up at 5 am, and I definitely can't run 10 miles. I would be happy to just run a mile, but I give in to the very first thought of my legs hurting or just not wanting to do it. So it comes down to a few things, how do I get my motivation and willpower up so I can run with out quitting, and how can I possibly enjoy this healthy excessive also know as a form of torture. (Lol)
I have read article after article about running, runners, and anything run! But it seems to do me no good when I go out to hit the pavement. When I run or should I say when I walk with brief moments of running I get out of breath, legs hurt, chest hurts and I think my goodness how will I ever become a daily jogger.
Well starting tomorrow I am going to be doing the couch to 5k program and hopefully with in 9 long excruciating (lol) weeks I will have mastered the technique to jogging 3.1 miles or a 5k. I know it's not going to be easy but I am past the point of making more and more excuses. I want to loose weight so bad but more than that I want to be healthy and help my kids to be healthy. So it seems this interval training plan for gradually increasing the times of running will hopefully do the trick.
I just hope this works because I'm almost to the point of just not eating ever! Kidding but I do feel that way, forgetting it to 2 years to put this extra 50 lbs on and it definitely will not come off over night, I wish! Hopefully keeping a weekly blog about I am doing on this program will help me stick with it and give it my all. So until next time wish me luck.
