Day7 - my first 5 k

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Seven days until my beautiful daughter's wedding!!

Thank you Stephanie for getting married because it was the announcement of that event apx 300 days ago that brought me to this day! Not only have you given me a son in law ( well in 7 days) but you have also given me much better health and a longer life!

I guess it is like the circle of life, lol! I gave you life 31 years ago and now you are giving me a longer healthier one!

This morning I decided that it was time to finally run for 5 Kms! I didn't plan it, it kind of just happened! I set out on my normal run, go for 15 mins and then turn back! I haven't run since Tuesday so I was thinking, this will be horrible and as long as it is horrible, I might as well make it worse and run for 5 k! Sometimes I am just mean to myself! Lol just do it and suffer! So I decided to just do it! And I did! I feel so motivated now! I have been feeling kind of unmotivated lately but this run this morning has energized me! I also had a radical thought! Maybe I should start running 6 days a week, that will get my body used to it! I have been running 3 times per week and I sometimes suffer greatly with that! If I do it 6 times a week, will my body adjust to the demands put on it quicker? Will the runs get easier quicker? I will see what the morning brings!

Right now, I feel fabulous! I was running for 44 mins!!! Longest time I have run in 19 years!
