There was a time when I used to work out everyday, well that time has come and gone. I probably work out maybe once a month. I know I know shame on me but I HATE it. It has now come to my attention that all my complaining about how I'm not as fit as I would like to be isn't exactly exercise unless you count running my mouth. I often say I'm allergic to exercise because I get massive headache's
after I work out but I guess you have to push through the pain and all
that jazz. So after much deliberating I have decided to get off my butt and get to work.
Two of my friends and I decided to run the half marathon in November and we all decided we better get cracking. When I told this to an avid runner he LAUGHED in my face and said aren't you starting a little early? I thought to myself do you even know me at all and how lazy I am when it comes to exercise? I emailed one of my running friends yesterday to see where they were in the whole training process... seeing as I hadn't even gotten off the couch let alone into any kind of exercise wear. She emailed back saying she was running about 1.5 miles without stopping and the other girl is running about 2. I about crapped in my pants and immediately went to go change because I knew I needed to catch up.
Internet, this is where I'm about to admit something so embarrassing even I am laughing at myself. I couldn't even run for more then two minutes! I am so out of shape I'm about to call Richard Simmons to get my ass in gear. People I am sore today. I didn't just quit after that and give up (even though I really wanted to) I did two miles and I almost DIED. Okay not really but it was harder then I thought. While I was running though I remembered Whoorl's Couch to 5k running plan and I decided to do that so the likelihood of me quitting would be far less.
I shall keep you updated on my progress... as of right now it hurts to sit on the toilet.
