I ran and walked 5 days in a row

I thought I was going to be exhausted when I finished the challenge but no that wasn’t the case. Right now I feel very motivate to keep going, I will be doing this during the rest of the month of February. I’m trying to work my endurance and I see the difference. I tolerate more. I’m not tired mid run or mid walk.


I forgot to post about my January Miles but I will take advantage of this post to let you know!

I ran 36.99mi

I walked 6.96mi

Just walk!

Hi!,,,

WALK

I don’t know if for some of you is hard but for me was very challenging. Yesterday I adventure myself for a 2.00mi walk. I noticed in the beginning I started very confident but the more I walk, the more my impatient self got frustrated, knowing that I have walk just 2.00mi in the same time I run 3.50mi. I know I’m just recovering for my recent ankle injury but OMG is driving me nuts.

So there my mind goes during my walk:

“I want to run”

“I can not run”

” I might just run 0.25mi”

” No, no that might be too much for my ankle”

” Come on,  just walk”

“Walk faster”

And etc…

I was fighting the fact that I’m just doing the most I can for the moment. I know that, but sometimes that frustrating thoughts win.

Is part of being human.

It going to take time, I just need to be more patient.

I also have a good goal for the rest of the year,  is loss weight. Always my goal since the beginning was running, but I have been incorporating more stuff but my weight never was an issue or a problem or concern or something I have to worry about. But after the injury like I wrote in my previous post I lost myself a little too much and that was never the plan but now that I’m refocusing myself, is going to be a priority along with walking and getting myself back to running hopefully before the year-end.

Looking forward to write more about my journey.

I’m Back July 2018 (update)

Hi!

It have been more than a minute since my last post here in my blog. I don’t have any excuse. I just had a lack of inspiration since I injured myself playing volleyball. My Ankle still bother me. I when recently back to the doctor and still the same swollen ligaments and effusion that’s a boomer. I can walk better now, but I can not be active like before the injury.

I lost my inspiration, I lost myself in this injury and I gain weight too. Something that I’m not proud of. Now that I feel a little bit better I might start taking walks (is the most I can do for now) also I might start doing low impact exercises so my ankle is not compromise. I have try to run twice since the injury the longest I ran was 0.51mi and my ankle remind me for almost a week that, was a bad idea.

I want to write good content but when your tool is damage is hard to write about something that is not happening. (Like play volleyball, Running, Walks, Goals).

So I’m going to try my best to find myself again so I can put that in words for my blog, my journal. That way I can start slow but for sure my personal inspiration again. This blog had help me a lot and I miss it.

So I’m back at it!

“You can do this”

“You got this”

March Totals 18′

Hi!

This month my goal was running more miles. Be more active. Drink more water, eating less sweet which I did very good; and walk more.

Let’s see if I achieved this month wishlist.

Days Active all month: 20/31

Total of miles run: 15.40mi

Total of running days: 10

1 Volleyball day  3 hours.  Post about it (Check it out Click Here)

2 Tennis practice 45min each day. Post about it  (Check it out Click Here)

1 day bowling 2 games.

7 days of workout at home around 30min-1hr.

 

This month was very active, I like that. I felt very compromise with me to do it. I did my best.  Hoping this motivation continue. I’m not training for a race or anything in particular. I just doing it for myself. Something that make me feel very proud that I’m choosing to be a better version of myself. I love seeing results but if you want to see it you need to do something about it.

 

(03-30-2018) During today’s run I did my best during the first mile but today I put in mind I was going for 2 miles so when I finally did the first mile I was tired and a little bit in pain in my lower back so I didn’t continue with the run I just walk the next mile.

During this  run I learn that sometimes you need to take it easy. You might need to walk or crawl but never stop.  (unless is something serious you know.) You just go and never quit.

Planning my next training

Hi!

I still running not the distance I want but at least is something. Right!

I want to start planning my next training schedule to achieve the distance I want to before my new goal distance event. Which is a 10k. Yes I’m so excited to this new chapter in my running journey, is something I have been think about, since my health is good and the doctor gave me the green light. This is what I’m looking forward to accomplish.

My longest run was 5.00mi years ago. It was on November 2013. I remember it was the running/walking type of run. I also remember it wasn’t plan at all. It was fantastic.

So this week my training start. I have 17 weeks to training. So I have a chart with the distance/workout I want to complete each day per week. I add some workout at home and the rest days. Everything can be modified and the chart is good to be accountable and obtain motivation.

Let’s see how it goes…!!
