Pinky Promise Intact

Picture0321

Why do I look like this, you ask?

Well, let me tell you.

I went out and RAN!

Okay I lied. More like got off my butt, ran and walked.

Better than nothing right?

I did 1.15 mi. with a super horrible time.

Things I learned/realized while running:

  • Never throw away everything you did in the summer training to run a 5k; it is always harder to get back on track.
  • My fracture is still there … whoops. Oh well.
  • If I motivate myself with some things (that I will not share), I can make it through.
  • I have less than 5 months to whip myself into shape.
  • Over all, I’m doing this for myself, but if it wasn’t for the promise I made on my blog that I will strap on my running shoes today, I never would have done so.
  • Also, I was thinking of Rachael all this time and didn’t want to disappoint her. Ever since college started again, I blogged way less than I use to but I know she’s always there reading (hopefully) and encouraging me. Thanks chica!

I did a lot of Christmas shopping and helped my mum find presents for people as well.

I stumbled on this baby at TJ Maxx for $9.99. Yes it’s Jillian Michaels and I loathe her but there are exercise cards, circuit training cards and training technique cards inside.

I realized these makes me workout more than videos do. I am not sure why.

Maybe because I don’t have to listen to her voice …

Anyway, I am thinking of doing them on my off days from running.

Let’s see how that goes.

Let’s see how long it’ll take till I fall of the bandwagon again.

Hopefully, never.

  1. Even though I’ve been the worst commenter in the world lately, I assure you I am still reading.

    And no matter how hard that 1.15 miles was, it is INFINITELY better than not doing anything at all! You’ll be back where you want to be in no time. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would be doing it – I tell myself that all the time.

    As for Jillian, she’s definitely tough and annoying but I love her anyway, she knows how to get people in shape! 🙂 xoxo keep your head up, email me if you need motivation, and whenever you feel like giving up know that I am cheering you on wherever you are and wherever I am!
