It’s time to get this body on track.
So last month I was doing absolutely no exercise. On Feb. 4th, my aunt signed me up for a 15k with her (thats 9.3 miles for those of you who don’t know and don’t worry I didn’t know either before I ran it). So anyways, the weekend right BEFORE (I know, idk how I committed to this being so out of shape haha) I decided to just go for it, as far as possible without stopping to see if I was in over my head or not. I threw my Nike’s on one afternoon and hit the ground running, quite literally.
Results: I made it 4 miles that afternoon. The next three days I rested, then I tried again and I hit 8 miles.
GOD. I felt like I was dying and y’all don’t understand I used to be SO in shape. I could run 8 miles a day.
Race day came; I made it. 9.3 miles down and because I ran it with my aunt and we kept it at a slow pace we finished in 02:20:17 time, something like that.. but we were both so proud of ourselves for running our first ever “k”. The Hot Chocolate 15k in Dallas is what we did. It was so much fun that the following weekend I started running again, I ran another 14 miles between Saturday and Sunday. Then this weekend I ran 16 miles between Saturday and Sunday, and during the week I attended two yoga sessions. I have a packed schedule as it is but my health matters to me and my body matters to me. I am going on three weeks into my commitment of running and yoga, so we’ll see where this takes me. I’ll post before and after pics when I can tell a difference. Cleansing my diet- what I eat and how I eat- is next on the list.
