I keep coming back and then disappearing again so hello everyone, some of you may remember me briefly
I did really well last October, November time with C25K and then quit running as my area is not the safest to be running in the dark on your own.
I started again in March/April time this year and dropped it all again.
It's too hot, too muggy, I'm tired, I'm hungry, I'm busy, my legs ache, I need to cook dinner, I'll go tomorrow, I'll go next week, I only washed my hair this morning I can't be bothered to get sweaty and have to wash it again... did I miss any excuses?!
The slightest thing is enough for me to not bother going running... However, I'm going to attempt to start again tonight after fat club. Yes, I need to start from the beginning, no matter how frustrating I find it... I want to be able to run 10km next week and I know it's not possible so I give up before starting.
I get married in January and really want to feel like I've improved my health, fitness, weight and muscle tone for it so I can feel good about myself on the day so it's time I stopped making excuses and 'starting next week' and got my bum out there to run. I felt so good in October when I was CHOOSING to run extra time, for up to 50 minutes. I've never been a runner, I've never been able to run, so it was such an achievement for me personally to be able to do that. Yet last week we did a colour run and I really struggled, I couldn't run even a km without stopping. I hated every single second of it. My teenage self came out of hiding and threw a proper strop about it!
There is only one way to get over it, and it's to GET OUT THERE AND GET RUNNING!
