Not in my Blood

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

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!
