I know a lot of people say they do not like to run. Believe me when I say it that I really really do not like to run. I never have. I hated it in elementary school when I would have to run around and around the field I was always pretty much last even when I tried a system where I walked 50 steps and run 10 (hmm I wounder why that did not work.) I liked playing some sports and other active things. Running to me had no purpose, what was the point to it really? I continued to dislike it in high school and so on.
I am standing at a cross roads right now people. With 2011 brand spanking new making resolutions has of course been on my mind. A year ago I downloaded the Couch25k app on my iphone hoping it would turn me into a fit six pack stomach runner with a perma grin loving every second. This is embarrassing to admit but I have not used it once. I also just realized that the program is 9 weeks and in a little bit longer than that There is a 5k that is part of the Salt Lake City Marathon.
Running actually appeals to me a little at the moment although I have yet to start. I actually think I would like to have time where my mind could wander while doing something productive for a change. I have a jogger stroller and Shout is in preschool 3 days a week the exact amount of days that Couch25K says you should run. Now all I need is a little more inspiration. The cold weather outside has me a little leery. I would love to know if any one else is signing up. A buddy just might push me to actually do it! I will keep you updated and am sure you will be waiting with baited breath for every update.
What things do you try to talk yourself into because you know it would be good for you?
