Its a run that I’ve been trying to ignore for the past, hmm, three weeks? I did the first two sessions of week 1 of the Couch2 5k running programme the said three weeks ago and then stopped. I couldn’t be bothered to get up in the mornings. I felt embarassed. I’m definitely not sporty and overweight to boot – running? Really? So I tried to put it to the back of my mind. And then I assured myself that I would start it up again in the easter holidays. The easter holidays came. And I stayed in bed. What a surprise!
So what happenned last night? I was doing a bit of blog hopping and I came accross the blog Shrink to Fit. Its really inspiring and just made me think – heck, I don’t have any excuses or real challenges. So I went out for that run. Because I knew if I didn’t go then I would never go!
And it was embarassing. I was well aware that my ‘run’ was slower than some people walk. And that my make shift running outfit was far from professional. And that I was red in the face and sweating.
I saw trees covered in cherry blossom:
And I could never done that if I had just stayed in my room and gone on the computer or played Age of Empires with my brothers 😉 Although I probably won’t think like this tomorrow morning when I have to force myself to get up and go.
