Last Training Day

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I have mixed emotions about today. It is my last training day before my first ever 5k walk. I feel like I am doing so much more than I thought possible just over a month ago and now am excited about the event. I signed up for the walk program because I honestly did not think I could walk three miles with only 5 weeks of training. Not only am I walking but I have started jogging some of the training days, only for short bursts but I figure it's a good place to start. I will walk the 3 miles on Event day just so I can be true to my actual walking time for the event but, I am very excited about signing up for the walk/jog 5k. I know having to jog for longer periods of time will be a challenge for me but I am up for it and ready to see what I can do.

I wish I had know how rewarding exercise could be when I was younger. At 34 I really feel like had I been more active when I was younger all the things that come with it like confidence, weight loss and goal setting would have made my life a little easier. My family didn't exercise and the only time I exerted myself was to make sure I could pass with a C in PE. Sometimes I think had I not moved so much (9 schools in 12 years) maybe I would have found a sport to play that I liked... I don't know. Anybody else have these thoughts???
