Will I ever be a runner? UGH!

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Well, I just started (again) the C25k program. Week 1, Day 1 is in the books, but WOW, was that hard. I know it is going to be harder at first, but it makes me wonder if I will ever be able to actually run and feel good doing it. It took everything I had not to end the running segments early! Probably a mind over matter type of thing, I just need to get my mind in gear. emoticon

So, part of my New Year's Resolution is to start to record my progress/set-backs to be a little more accountable. As you can see if you browse my page, there needs to be some updating done. I almost titled this blog, starting again?????? since it seems that I'm always starting and never finishing. If I would have only followed through, I would now be where I want to be now!

Stay tuned for further updates about how Great I'm doing.....that's positive thinking!

    Keep at it. It will get easier (this coming from a 278 lbs 28yr old that still cannot finish even a quarter mile without stopping, but did two 5Ks last year). You can do this! Keep pushing it. You'll get there!!

    I know that I can never be a runner....but I will proudly tell you I AM A WOGGER!! It's a half jog/half walk type exercise. It's what my body it's my own 'running' style!

    You can do it! I felt the same way with C25K. I actually found the first week to be the hardest compared to other weeks to come. It's funny reading my iPod entries after each run. Started out like "omg that was horrible" to "ok...wasn't too bad actually". I don't think I'm ever going to love running though, but I can run and so can you :)
