Week 2 Day 1 Couch to 5K

Saturday, March 30, 2013

I am discovering that I have these strange apprehensions about running outside. I'm self-conscious about being 270lbs and doing the training in a public area where everyone can see me. I have to keep reminding myself that if someone wants to make a snarky comment about me it is their problem not mine. More importantly I have to remind myself that I am more likely than not creating an unlikely scenario in my head. Chances are no one is actually paying attention to what I am doing.

On a plus side I feel WONDERFUL!!!!! and "Super Bad" after completing today's run. Now I'm off to listen to James Brown.

    Good for you!!! I, too, was very self-conscious when I first started running outside. Seemed like the farther I had to run, the less I had the energy to worry about those silly boys who I thought were staring at me....they weren't ;) I got past it and just go do my thing and have learned to not care what others might think. We can't control it anyway, so leave all that energy for you!! Keep it up!!
