I loved it!
Running three times a week in February has been just great! I love running and the more I do it the more I love it! In fact, I love it so much I'm keeping it as a goal for March. Yep!
Unfortunately, the love of something is not always enough to make us do it so I wrote a little list of "notes to self" for future reference.
:: once you set your goal, tell the world about it. Everyone you know. Make yourself accountable for it. That will keep you going when all else fails.
:: don't pressure yourself. Just go out and do it. For the first few times, anything you achieve is a bonus.
:: by the end of week 2, I set myself small goals for my time. I didn't mind at all with distance covered, I just wanted to run for a longer period and increased it gently.
:: by the end of week 3, things became so much easier! I could run for 30 minutes without feeling I had a panda sitting on my chest.
:: the feeling after every single run is AMAZING!
:: looking at the mosaic above makes me want to do it all over again. Love!
In case you're wondering, I am not a runner. I am a person who goes out and runs. All my February runs were under 33 minutes covering 3.5 – 4.8 km per run. To me it's about doing it!
