Running…I Call Thee Nemesis

 

So here’s the skinny, I just had a birthday and though I am happy and blessed to have  another year, I am feeling disappointed with my health all around. I know that something needs to change, and I want to start thirty-three with good healthy habits. I have already started eating better, and being a weekday vegan (we’ll touch base on another post) has made drastic improvements in my health and how I feel. But, I know that I need to include more physical activity in my life and my goal this year is to conquer running outside. Well.. conquer running.

Okay, the news of the hour (not  much news to those who know me), I HATE running. I hate all of it! I hate the sweating profusely and the being out of breath. I hate, and I can vouch for all plus size girls out there, knowing that as I am attempting to run, my body is moving in all sorts of directions. That alone is reason enough to break out in sweat. BUT, I have decided, for the sake of my health, to ignore all these reasons (some might call excuses..but whatever!) to run. My first step towards this goal is to learn how to run.

captureThere is this cool app called C25K and its meant to get you from being a “couch potato” to running a 5k. This is all supposed to happen within six weeks. I have heard great things about it and so I am hopeful and excited to begin. I’ll keep you posted on my progress, wish me luck!!
