Cos pringles are delicious!
Straight up, I’m a little bit more like this:
But lately, I’ve been starting to switch to this:
because dang it girl, know your worth and add TAX!
But then this happened:
And for the first few times out, it felt like this:
Even though it wasn’t straight running, it was more like:
And now it’s gotten all the way up to this:
So the FBI agent in my laptop camera has noticed that I have been running lately, and Pinterest has responded in kind with all these running shirts. It’s been great fun. But really, let’s have a chat about it.
I go through these exercise phases before- Pilates was the last one I wrote about on this blog. It lasted for about six months before I ended it. But mostly because I was leaving Korea where a whole month of classes was $35 (that’s 12 classes! For THIRTY-FIVE DOLLARS!) Of course that’s because I only had to pay 50% since I worked in the building. But still, $70 for a whole month of classes is insane! In Canada, it’s like $20-30 per class. PER. CLASS. Um, no thank you.
That’s not the point – right now I’m in a running phase. I started right after Thanksgiving, so it’s been 2 weeks now. I know – two whole weeks! I’m on a roll! When I started, the first few times out I was going just under one kilometre. Now I’m up to 2! It takes about 20 minutes to do the full 2 kilometres, it’s mostly flat and a nice run. Like one of those shirts say, I do walk a lot of it, but I’m able to go for longer stretches of running every time I go out. The walking is getting less, and when I do walk, that break is starting to become smaller and smaller between running times. I go one night, take two off, and then go again. Except for this week that would have put a run on Friday and I can’t run Friday night so I went yesterday which was only one day of rest but I still was able to run more than on Saturday.
I’m super proud of my self! And, as much as I complain about running sucking the most suck of anything that has ever sucked, I am actually enjoying myself. Which is a nice surprise.
What have you done that you’re proud of lately? I’ve love to hear about it!
