Pinky Promise Intact

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.
