My New Years Resolution is to run in a marathon this year. Well, most likely a half marathon, but more like a 5K. And it will probably be next year instead of this year. But there it is. That's what I'm working towards.
For the last 2 weeks I have been out running....errrr....walking as fast as I can with a little bit of jogging here and there. I do 2 miles every time I go out.
The 1st week I was so disappointed because I didn't feel like I was getting any stronger or any faster. I know it takes longer than that to see real results, but I don't like to wait for results.
This week (my 2nd week) I have been doing more slacking off. I haven't been out as much as I should have and a couple nights I did the Gazelle (oh horrible, horrible beast!) instead of getting out and doing the real thing.
Thankfully tonight one of my good friends (Loveeee you C!) motivated me. She wants to get back in shape as well. So she started running her 2 miles, as well. It didn't go as well as she had planned.
Her motivation went something like this:
"I really thought I could go faster than you because you're heavier than me."
No, she wasn't saying it to be mean, and I didn't take it that way. But really, being overweight hurts. So I got my ass out there and did it.
And I finally felt STRONGER!! I really did. I went out there and pushed myself. I actually made myself SUCK. WIND. Not just a little bit of huffy puffy, boy am I tired. I pushed myself. I pushed myself hard.
Next time I will push myself even harder.
And all I have to say is THANK YOU C. I LOVE YOU TONS AND WISH I COULD SEE YOU SOON. KEEP YOUR CHIN UP. THINGS WILL ONLY GET BETTER FOR YOU AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.
