Walk to train

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

The other day I was trying to figure out why I don't like to go for walks while at work. 1st I'd like to let you know that was really hard to admit, but it's SO true.

2nd, I want to go out with a purpose. I don't really like walking around the building. It's not inspiring to me at all. Instead, I want to go train to run or jog for a 5K.

That said, I've decided that is what I'm going to do. I'm going to bring my clothes and shoes with the intent to run/jog during my break.

It's about 1 mile if I go around the entire perimeter so its not like I'll get very sweaty while I'm out.

For the last 3 days though I have brought my clothes and shoes to do this. But have I gone out yet? No, I haven't. The 1st day I got some terrible news that a high school friend of mine died of a massive heart attack and I frankly was too much in shock to go out. (Let me also say this guy was healthy [looking], so it was really difficult to fathom since I'm not in the least bit health.) The next day, it was rainy. Today - it was too cold from last night's rain. I'm going to make myself go out for an afternoon break today though and get my first training session under my belt.

Anyway, I'm glad I finally figured it out - that I have to have a mission. Now - just to keep a mission on my list.

Have a great day. I hope you find your mission to do what you need and want to do.

    Hi sweetie! So glad you're back :)

    Yes, it's good to have a goal & once you do that first walk/run at work - I think you'll feel great and be ready to get back on track. It's that first step that's always the hardest, but once you do it, you'll be glad you did!

    Sorry to hear about your HS friend. It's scary when that happens to people & it should be an extra motivator for us to get healthy!!! We can do this ~ let's GO!!!
