With all the changes that I'm making in my life, running was one of my goals. I started C25K 2 weeks ago. Week 1 was great; I even decided to do it again so my husband could join me. The Mr. has quit smoking (almost 2 months) and has also decided to run. This morning, I got up bright and early, feed the baby, and got ready for my run-Week 2 Day 1 of C25K (90 seconds of running, then 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes). OMG-I was dying after 2 intervals. Now with the excuses....pollen is out so my allergies were acting up, for the past 10 months (pregnancy) I didn't do anything, except maybe walk, it was really windy, it was early.....oh this list could go on forever. After killing myself for 15 minutes, I decided that I'm NOT and NEVER will be a runner. I hated running long distances when I was in high school and in the best shape of my life. I don't know what made me think that now at 27 I'd love it. I know you are thinking, "But you are giving up so quick?!?!" Yep, I am. It's just not in my blood. I would love to love to run. My sister-n-law is a runner-loves to run, and she runs a lot-6 to 10 miles at a time. I wish I could be like that, but I'm not. So now I'm looking for a new means of exercise.
I am a dancer-love it!!! I started dancing at the age of two and it has been a passion ever since. Dancing is a totally different work out than running, a different type of stamina is required. I can't run for 90 seconds straight, but I could dance for 4 minutes-leaps, turns, the whole 9 yards. So now I'm changing my workout. If I'm going to work out, I might as well do something I love-right? I'm now on the search for dance classes. The only thing that isn't so convenient with dance classes is that Emma can't tag along, so I'll have to find a sitter or do it at night when the Mr. can watch her. Wish me luck!
