Training To Run

Hi!

If you have been reading my recently posts you know that I’m starting from the bottom, from zero to running again. I decided to start doing some push-up and work my core a little, so that way I have more endurance or I feel more capable to run. I don’t know,is like baby steps start like a beginner again. I feel good with myself recently. I feel like a have the power to work my mind to decide doing what I was doing with my body and for myself before pregnancy and baby.

Doing the daily at home, taking care of my little baby girl, plus doing exercise. It may sound like three things but is more than that and I know that I’m capable to do this and more that is for me. We need to start with our self so it is easy to love and appreciate the love that is around us.

I start this new year like no other. In the past I found a good motivation to start running. I may talk about later when I feel more confident to share that experience. But this year the motivation is me. Work for me, myself and I. For my health, my body and my confidence. It may sound a little selfish but sometime you need to give you self some respect and stop thinking about the rest.

At the end of the month I will be doing a recap of everything I’m doing to start running. That journey is about to start next month. I’m so excited to start and share every step with you that read me.


 

Thanks for reading!

Hi!

I participated in my very real first 5k event on July 20, 2013. The Event was the 5k Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk in the midwest. Around 4,000 participants registered for this event.
