I am by no means overweight, in fact I am quite skinny, but like everybody else out there I have insecurities, mine being the size and shape of my thighs. I have tried running before, but gave up as I was simply trying to push myself too hard too fast and then felt even worse when I didn't manage. A couple of days ago I was once again looking at my thighs and feeling upset that they weren't the way I wanted them to be, so I decided why not try and do something about it? If I am really this unhappy with my thighs why don't I just start exercising again? There was nothing stopping me, aside from my own mindset. So I started searching for running programs as my last one had failed and left me feeling horrible. I came across couch to 5k and decided to give it a go. I completed my first run of week 1 yesterday and while that may not seem all that impressive you cannot imagine how proud I was of myself for finally deciding to do something. I felt good after running, because I had been able to achieve everything, despite there being a lot of walking involved and I am now motivated to go running again and even looking forward to the next 9 weeks. Mainly I am posting this because I feel that if my motivation starts wavering this might make me feel guilty and force me to running.
