Today I started 10K training!
I ran a 5K years ago and really wanted to pick it up again. I considered doing another 5K first, but was much more jazzed about the idea of doing a 10K instead. That was all the motivation I needed!
Not that I am even REMOTELY much of a runner. Can't even say I am much of a jogger.
How do I say this?
I am slow.
This has nothing to do with my perception of my body or weight or anything. It's just that I run like a winded rhino.
Like a turtle who took a Valium.
Like molasses creeping up a frozen hill.
If I went any slower I'd be going backwards.
You get the point.
I'm working on that.
I figure I will concentrate on building endurance for a run and then work my way up to focusing on times. I also need to work on form. I mean, I'm no Pheobe from friends, but my form could use a little work. Any tips?
So yeah, I am schlepping my way through this, but at least I am doing it. Pretty happy about that!
Well, I better go. Need to get dinner made for the fam. Have a lovely day!
