I never have been much for running...at least not since elementary school....it's been a while. Well, I decided I would start working out and 'running' to get in better shape before I go to Uganda at the end of May. I started walking. But it wasn't long until my walking turned into a light jog and then I would stop and walk.
Now I still stop and walk every once in a while but I definitely have been getting the time in and not to mention the miles in. Here are my stats so far:
Not the best in the world...and I am no marathon runner nor am I preparing for one...But I am glad to see that I am sticking with a goal to help get me in better shape...Now sometimes I will run twice a day...If I am sitting in my house for too long my legs start telling me they want to run...This is a sensation I don't recall ever feeling...And when I run now in the mornings....I don't have to stop because it is cooler and I have no problems.
In just a short time of being consistent and getting up and out and actually doing it, I have seen great improvements in the way I feel when I wake up in the morning...my energy has increased and of course my waist size is going down! I use the Nike+ GPS app because it monitors my runs and I can see what I have done and how I have improved...I have no regrets about what I have done so far and plan on keeping up the hard work so I can keep with my 3 kids :)
