This morning I tried a new variation to my schedule.
I woke up at 7, before everyone else and got out the door to the gym. By 7:35, I was on a treadmill starting to work out. I walked/ran for 30 minutes...I call it "wogging" because I'm not really running at 5 mph. Lol. I walked about 20 minutes and I wogged for 10. But I can only run for 5 minutes at a time. I suck.
None of my clothes fit anymore. I've only gained about 10 pounds from last year at this time, but it's enough that I'm uncomfortable. So, I have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.
I want to be a runner. I do. But I hate every minute of it. Period.
I don't know if it's because I haven't given it a fair shake, or because I just talk myself out of it. Either way, I need to figure something out. I like being active. I enjoy many other activities. So, the plan is to get to the gym and do something at least 3 days a week. Hopefully, I can build from there.
As I walked through the parking lot to my car this morning, I realized that I felt good. If for nothing other than sanity, I need to do this. For me. If nothing else, it clears my head.
So, any tips on running? Will I ever love it, or is it something I'm just going to hate, but suffer through?
