But (can we talk?) I just don’t feel like it anymore – can’t say I know why. It’s not because I hurt myself or anything specific.
Oh, no worries, I get plenty of exercise with all the other stuff I do but I kinda miss the fact that I don’t feel like running.
Anyway, I tell you this because a couple of weeks ago, one of my girls tells me they had downloaded a “Couch to 5K” app on their phone – and had started to run. Next week my other daughter says the same thing. This was weird. They never did understand my love of running…and now they’re running and I’m not!
So, I downloaded the app and started running. Week one starts with a 5 minute warm-up, then just 60 seconds of running followed my 90 seconds of walking…hey, I can do that! I told myself I’m doing it so I can run with them when I visit one next week and one a few weeks after…but you never know…maybe it will motivate me to keep it up! I’m curious…what motivates you to participate in some of the activities that you do?
Check out the picture! That’s me all bundled up in OR (where I was speaking last week). That was day 1 of week 1 of my new running experience. I’ll let you know how it goes.
