This past weekend we had our first training for running. It is based on a book called I Hate Running. I think it is true for many of us. I know I do not enjoy it. I do not enjoy it at all! That being said, I do need to be prepared for it. Not only do I hate running, but as of right now I don’t even think that I could run a straight mile. I especially know that I could not run a mile right now after swimming for a half mile and riding a bike for 10. Therefore, I got up early on Saturday to join the group. I found out, surprisinly, there are really not too many people who like running. And the ones who do like it said it took them a long time to get to the point where they could say that they actually like running. My question is why keep doing it if you don’t like it? But then again, who am I to say? Just another crazy person out of my element trying to do something that I never thought possible.
Like anything in life, the trick is to be prepared. I found that I don’t need to be able to run 3 miles today. That I will build up to it. So that is my plan. I’m going to start running/walking with my workout buddy tomorrow.
I really am taking this one step at a time/ I know I will never be the star athlete nor will I have have great time. I really am just using this as incentive to keep going. Keep moving. Keep getting it together.
