I have started running.
I'll give you a minute to let that soak in.
Yes, me. I've started running with the Couch to 5k program. I did my first workout on Sunday, did yoga yesterday and will do my second workout tonight on my mom's treadmill.
Here's the biggest shocker. I LIKED IT. Now, keep in mind I was running 60 seconds, walking briskly 90 seconds for 20 minutes. Not a whole lot of actual running but still. I liked it. I liked the feeling of moving quickly, my feet hitting the pavement rapidly and pushing the running stroller. I just...enjoyed it. My ultimate goal at this point is to run a 5k this spring. If you knew me in real life, you'd know how huge this is for me. Typically, I hate running. But I've made it a goal to learn to enjoy the one type of exercise you can do ANYWHERE. Vacation, home, anywhere. You can run. I want to go on runs at Disney World this June in the morning before everyone else wakes up. I just want to be a runner.
And that my friends is 90% of my battle.
Here goes nothing...
