So it's officially been a week since I started "Running".
I'm not able to take that word out of quotes yet
but I do believe that YET is the operative word.
You can catch up on my first thoughts on running HERE
Since then, I have gone every single day.
Here is what I have noticed so far:
I still can't run the whole way.
But I'm dying less.
I'm eating better; more frequently, smaller,
less carbs, less calories, drinking more water.
I'm listening to a new (to me) awesome podcast
that I love, it gives me that same great feeling of
reading a wonderful book. (This American Life)
I've also started doing a routine Billy recommended,
20 squats, 30 lunges, 40 toe touches (all with weights),
50 second wall squat and 100 jumping jacks.
It's awful. But I love it.
I haven't lost a single pound. And that's OK.
My lungs are getting stronger, I'm getting stronger.
And last but not least...
I feel really proud of myself.
And for right now, that is enough.
Please wish me luck & perseverance as the
next 5 days of the weather appear to be all rain,
if I can just get a little break in the morning to go
I will be super happy : )
