So Here's the Thing...
Thursday, June 25, 2009
I don't actually like running. It's boring. I've been doing this C25K thing, and I've done alright, I guess, but I just don't look forward to it. There are lots of things I'd rather do---workout-wise, not just "things I'd rather do"---that I would actually get done and enjoy doing. Dance workouts. Yoga. I do Curves 2-3 times a week and I've been doing the C25K thing 3 times a week. That's 6 days a week, three of which I dread and may not actually complete.
Apart from just a mental distaste for running, my body doesn't seem to like it, either. Feels like it's rattling my already-operated-on-once spine and my hope-they-don't-get-worse knees. I can't even run first thing in the morning because my back is so sore from just sleeping.
I guess the only thing I DO like about the C25K is that there's a sense of accomplishment when I get done. This, "Veni, Vidi, Vici" kind of thing. Although, if I quit now, I feel more like, "Veni, Vidi, Vado."
So what's more important? Getting the workouts done, or enjoying workouts enough to keep doing them? Should I persist with the C25K, even though it's super boring? Or should I do my dance workouts that are fun and energizing? *sigh* Decisions, decisions.
