I hate that commercial! I don't know why it bugs me so much.
Anyway, I've discovered walking again and I think that I've found love.
Let me back up, I've ALWAYS had a love/hate relationship with running. I want to be a runner so badly. I want to run outside...I want to love all of the elements...I want to increase my speed and blog about all of my wonderful racing adventures. I really want to...I really do. I so enjoy reading everyone else's running blogs and I am inspired and envious of everyone who gets out there, iPod in tow...Garmin in hand....and ready to run for their lives. I really, really, really, really want to do that.
My last blog was called "Becoming That Girl"...cause that is the girl that I wanted to be. But after awhile, I was tired of trying to be someone that I'm not. And I didn't want a whole blog dedicated to not being myself. Hence the change to "Just Me."
Anyway, I digress...I now consider myself someone who runs. 3-4 miles is usually my breaking point...and it is usually on the treadmill (not outside)...but I consider it an accomplishment none the less.
So, I say all of that to say that lately I've been walking on the treadmill (on an incline) and I've been getting a REALLY good workout. I've been doing about 4 miles...at 15:00 pace...with varying inclines. And it is actually enjoyable. Well, maybe enjoyable is a little strong...but I'm not miserable doing it...and I've been gladly going upstairs to the treadmill to get my walk on.
I vowed to finish up C210K...but I'm not sure if it's gonna happen. I'm going to mix it up between running and walking...and some days I may even run AND walk. It's good to mix up your work out and after 11 weeks of C210K, I'm ready to mix it up!!!
SN: I was supposed to start my yoga regimen today until I realized it was Memorial Day and they changed their schedule. Oh well! It actually worked at better because I am in dissertation hell and I should be writing rather than spending 90 minutes in a heated room. But I will definitely be there on Wednesday!!!:) So excited!
