When no body understand why you run!

Hi!

Here some words that I want to express and internally work within my soul.

When no body understand why you run!

They don’t understand why I love running.

What run did and do for me.

Running is my passion.

Running is my distraction.

Running is my peaceful place.

Running is my alone time.

Running is Me.

Running is more than a run for me.

Running is my motivation to keep going strong and achieve what I want in life.

Right now, running  is just that.

Running is something hard to explain to others. Thing that you need to start avoiding if “others” don’t come with positive thoughts about this topic from now on. (note  to myself )

Running is something that if you not experience for yourself, you will never know how it make you feel.

I’m running because I can prove myself that I’m good enough to set a goal and make it happen.

Running makes me a person who is determined to accomplish an objective.

Yes, just a word and an action with three letters RUN.

My motivation today

Hi!

I still quiet doing some noise!!

This time is not the time to surrender!

My workout today was a good one, but the path to get there and do it, was a hard one. Today was a more or less kind of day. More for my mood than other thing. I think like 10 times how to start doing the workout of the day. I put my workout clothes, the sneakers… I put the music on but something was off. So I went on pinterest for an inspirational quotes and this one came across.

“Don’t stop when you’re tired. Stop when you’re DONE.”

There’s when it hit me, hit me hard. There’s when I stop and thought why I’m doing this. Then I start stretching and 30min later I was done, but I wanted to keep going but I knew is what good for the day. I did a kickboxing workout at home. It was fantastic, it felt so good. It was a good reminder that why I’m doing this.

I did 30 (10 x 3) push-ups!! DAMN, I was motivate. Is the first time in my life I did that amount of push-ups.

So with this kind of days when you struggles to start doing your workout and need some motivation search for something inspirational. It help me a lot this time.

My 5k Plan! 2017

Hi!

I have been thinking in suscribe to a 5k. I was searching a good way to training myself to do it. I found this page DAREBEE a few weeks ago and I have been using it; the cardio for the day system when I don’t run. So navegating in the page I saw they have a running plan for a 5k that take 8 weeks. (here the link 8 weeks to 5k)

Next week on Tuesday I going to start. I might put my touch to the plan but I’m going to follow that plan for the next 8 weeks. I’m excited for this plan.

I’m thrilled that my determination this days is in a good level.

This is very important to me.

A little bit farther

Hi!…

(short)

Today I decided to ran a little more than the others days. I feel proud, I just stop once to cross the street. It was a little bit 0.72mi. in a good pace. During the run I felt so light, free and grateful. Light in the way that I breath that air that makes me feel alive and free spirit. Grateful that this day was a good day, that I enjoy every moment of it.

A good word for today is Determination: because I’m very clear to what I want in my life. Because I’m not a quiter. Because I have a goal, a passion and the courage to do what I wish for. Because I know that I’m capable to do it.

**This week  is going to be hard to run so I’m planning in do some cardio at home.

(If you have some recommendation/suggestions let me know in the comments)

Running and Meditation

Hi!

(Personal)

Today I going to write about running and meditation.

Why?  I have been expericience some signs of anxiety. It recently develop more since we moved to this new state where everything is new, different and very unusual for our lifestyle.

In 2014 when I had my baby I thought it was depression post partum but it when off. I started at that moment taking yoga classes and meditation, and it help me a lot to handle that issue.

Recently I started to run again since I decided that this is my moment for me, for me , and for me. So I’m thinking if I add to my life a little bit of meditation It could help. Before it work I hope this time too. I need it.

I recently decided to take this step that I have been procastinating for so long but I haven’t the courage to open about it. And now is the time. I know I’m not alone.

I have been suffering anxiety

It took me a long time to talk about this because it hard to accept that something is happening to me. In the moment that I accepted it, I felt a little free.

So I’m considerating add this practice to my routine. Do you meditate?


Today is April 2, 2017.

I ran 0.50mi This run was very peaceful and very quiet. I thank God for this run today.


Yesterday April 1, 2017.

I ran 0.50mi. This  run turns into a dark place when someone decided to be a bully and scream something that I’m not allow myself to repeat because I’m a better person. I’m a good person, that kind of person, if you need me, I will be there for you to help you stand up. I learn that if you cancel the negative, That thought goes away so that was what I did it today and that’s why my run was a succesful one.


Sorry if this is not what you want to read. This is my life and I write about my life. 

This is the Diary of C.P.

Peace and Love C.P

 

 

 

 

Warm up RUN

Hi!

First Run of the Year

Starting from the bottom!

Today I decided to go out for a run. The weather was 33°F, it was a little colder than I was expecting but that’s what you get when you decided to run in winter. Right!

I just ran 0.50 mi. I was feeling like I was slow like a turtle, then I check my pace I was running like my normal pace but in some point I was short of breath. Then I walk a little and started running again to finish with little distance for today run. I got a little frustrated but this is just the beginning. I know that sometimes is going to be harder, the thing that matter is not quitting.

This is my year I’M NOT Giving up!

Good Luck everyone with every goal that you make for this year! Don’t give up…!
