i have been wanting to start my running back up. i keep putting it off for some reason. i love to walk. i walk my dog every day. but it just isnt giving me the burn i need.
i started my c25k back up today. i had been trying to start where i left off , which is week 7. it just isnt working. so i decided to start at week 3. 3 min walking, 3 min jogging. as i was puttering along, i started thinking of a few years ago. i had completed the c25k. i was actually jogging a 5 k 2 or 3 times a week. not really fast. i think i got up to a 16 min mile. but i remember jogging around the track and several people would stop me and ask me how i got started in jogging. they were admiring me. what an awesome feeling that was.
so why did i quit? i have no idea except that life gets in the way and you have to be really determined to keep that momentum going .
i need to keep thinking along these lines and remember how i felt before when i completed it. i struggled today, but i know it will get easier. i just have to eat right, think right, and stay positive.
have a great spark day!!
