Running on my mind

Saturday was the first day in months and months that I have actually felt like going for a run. That doesn’t mean that I actually took a step outside, but the thought did dwell on my mind.

Ever since I committed to running a 30KM race with my uncle, I have despised running. Needless to say, I have decided NOT to run the 30KM. When running a distance that long, it is really 80% mental and 20% physical, in my opinion. I was dreading it even before I started training and so I knew I just wouldn’t be able to do it. Not yet. I am not ready. Maybe one day I will get my running groove back and run a 30KM.

I really need to start doing something again. I feel so out of shape. I used to go to the gym every day and now it is twice a week, if I am feeling extra ambitious. It’s terrible. My poor body is not used to so much laziness. Ugh. Where is my groove and how do I get it back!?? :unsure:

I weighed in at Weight Watchers today and I was down 0.2lbs. It’s not much, but it’s better than a gain. However, I know I can do better. I am committing to working out at least 3 times this week and hopefully the scale will show the results next week. It’s time to get back to my “ideal body.” LOL. Plus, my jeans are getting tight! 😉

    Maybe I should move to Canada so we can push and motivate each other 😉 I’m the same way, I don’t know where my motivation went. I think I lost it somewhere between “trying to be more social” and “freaking out because of stress at work” 😀 Now I’m just happy if I can do 2-3 workouts every week, and that’s just not enough for me. Meh! It doesn’t help having a laaazy boyfriend either, hrmpf 😛

    Running is something I used to hate so, so, so much. After a while I realised I was a good runner for long distance and had extremely good endurance. I haven’t been running in a while, because I haven’t had time and the weather’s been a bit crap (they say weather shouldn’t be an excuse though!).

    In Sydney we have the City to Surf, a run that’s usually 14km. I haven’t ever entered, but I would like to some time soon. I should probably do training of some sort though. 😉

    Best of luck with the weight loss, dear! <3

    First of all, congrats on losing 0.2 lbs! You go, girl. 😀 Wish it was me. Right now it seems that all I need to do is LOOK at a cookie and I gain 5 pounds. I have to start getting some exercise also. I think it’s really important that you felt like running, even if you didn’t end up doing it, because that means that it is beginning to become a positive thing for you, which is pretty important if that is ones exercise of choice.
