Good Night Everyone!
I know I haven't spoken about fitness/health in a while since my rant about being healthy this year as a resolution. And no I did not fail or quit - yet. A while ago I was finally able to run without dying. When I started the gym in February I couldn't run longer than 2 minutes without being completely lost for breath. Well that quickly changed about half way through the month. I was finally able to run for 5 minutes without being too uncomfortable. Well now that it is march I am able to run 10 minutes! I just did it for the first time this morning.
Goal Milestone: Run for 10 minutes comfortably!
To some of you, you are probably thinking that's nothing because you can run for hours without a care. I have never really ever ran before. I never played sports in school ,wasn't very active except for my paper route! Being able to run for 10 minutes is an accomplishment for me. I am so excited to be able to hit my next milestone, the 15 minutes.
Originally, I had wanted to be able to run with Anthony in our neighbourhood in the spring. I feel like this might be possible,but he is getting better too! I might be able to go as long as him by then, but he runs a lot faster so we might start next to each other but he will probably get more distance so eventually we won;t be running together. I had some other goals....go to the gym 5X a week. This is a hit and a miss. Sometimes we do, sometime we don't. Its slacking I know but I don't want to force myself and turn the gym into something I dread. The other goal was to lose 15 lbs by June 1st. That won't happen. Its been a month, I haven't budged. I'm still obviously going to try to lose it, but its not getting me down. People keep telling me I am healthy weight and what not so I am not too concerned. I just wanted to do it for myself to feel better. I feel better just achieving my running goals, so if I lose it, awesome...if not oh well. My attitude will likely change more once bikini season rolls around!
