So I started to Couch 2 5k back in November/December time frame. My goal was to take as long as I needed to, to get through the program and knock one of the items off of my 40 by 40 list. For some reason I can’t bring myself to finish the stupid thing. I’ve finished Week 8, and I’ve started Week 9, but I get so flipping bored and just want to do other things. I’ve tried running indoors on the treadmill and outdoors in various locations. With the exception of running by East Mission Bay in San Diego, it isn’t exactly fun outside either.
For a while I was LOVING the running, but now I feel like I have to force myself to do it. I am signed up for a 5k in mid April and I am excited to just get through it so I can knock it off of the list. I am having so much more fun going to classes, going hiking, trying out different machines at the gym, etc. I am starting to realize that running might just not be my thing.
Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s awesome that I can hop on the treadmill or go for a run outside and knock out a few miles now, something I’ve never really been able to do before, but I’m not IN love with it, if you know what I mean. I did 8 miles in 60 minutes on the elliptical on Level 6 this past Sunday. I know that the elliptical and running aren’t the same, but it does show me that I do have the endurance to push myself for a full hour.
Tata for now,
