First 5K Run Is In One Month…
Yikes, not having the weight-loss success I had hoped. In fact, I suck. I even gained a pound this last week.
I have been eating much healthier. And fewer calories. The problem is the exercise. I get started, then get focused on something else and just flat forget. Start a streak, miss, forget.
Two months now of that. Some good things are that my muscles and skin are tightening up, and it is getting easier to run, even though I am still heavier than I want to be.
But wow, the intense discipline I thought I could bring to this has not arrived yet. No reason, no real excuse.
So starting up a streak once again today. 5 miles a day of distance, both some running and walking. Got it today to be day one of the streak, but got to hit it tomorrow to even have a streak. Goal is to hold a 5 mile per day streak until that first race in the middle of September. Short enough time that I should be able to do that. We shall see.
If I can hold that, it will sure make that first 5K a ton easier and more fun. And all the runs following that one through the fall more fun as well.
Maybe I should do some videos on motivation… oh, wait, I do that every week…maybe I should listen to myself. (grin)
