I wanted to gush here, as my partner is getting sick of my new running obsession!!
The last time I ran was in 2006, I know this for sure because when I left high school I left the running behind! So 10 years later and 10 years of laziness was really showing its stuff, however I'm getting married this year and would like to look a little less wobbly in my wedding photos. I started to google 'running for beginners' and quite by accident stumbled onto the 'couch to 5K' and can honestly say it is the best thing to ever come out of a google search! I have my first dress fitting in April and christmas over ran for me so I'm pushing myself harder than I would have done before. I'm starting to feel it, particularly in my knees. But last night I hauled my tired ass out and completed Wk4R1 and the high I felt after being able to run for 5 minutes continuously was insane. I've never felt that good about life. I swear I thought I'd never do it, but I did! I know that there are going to be bad runs but I'm so engrossed in this program I'll keep going on regardless. I truly was one of those people who think people who enjoy exercise are completely nuts, there's no such things as a post workout high... and initially I was just doing this because I thought it'd help me lose weight and be healthy. Now I'm doing it because I'm in love with it!!
I'm sure i'll share my new life love with you all plenty more times in the future. But for now, going to get back to googling running shoes
