Y’all! I just finished a recovery jog after my 30km treadmill run yesterday. I wasn’t feeling well this weekend and didn’t get my long run in on Sunday. I had an extra long layover in Toronto yesterday so I hopped an Uber to a gym 20 mins away and I did my long run, the whole damn thing, on the treadmill. 😮
#️⃣1️⃣ NEVER AGAIN #️⃣2️⃣ I am so proud of myself!! This year has been about blasting past everything I think I “can’t” do and I have never been able to stay engaged enough to run more than 12km on the treadmill before. I’m not going to pretend I enjoyed one moment of it, but it wasn’t so bad and the feeling of self accomplishment I have is through the roof! Made it to Mexico and my hotel has this lovely little gym, but honestly... who cares, WHERE ARE THE 🌮’s !!??!?!?
What does running mean to me? The answer is 👆 Jag behöver kanske inte säga så mycket mer, ta en titt på min nya tatuering istället. Snygg va? Löpningen har verkligen gjort och gett mig mycket, ni anar inte..
Ok so I thought I’d share my running progress 🏃♀️💛
Last year around September I decided to commit to 1 x sprint session per week just for 4 weeks. Nothing major, no extra commitments. Just wanted to see how it went.
Since that month, I’ve continued it on almost every single week (except maybe 2 I’ve skipped).
Once January hit, trav and I were away and decided to do 1 long distance (by long distance, I mean 5km run lol). Again, just committed to 1 only. I hated it. I was so slow. Butttt I decided to go for us one more...
That 1 run, has now turned in to a weekly long distance run (I’m slowly working myself up to 10km).
I used to run for about 12 years when I was younger; and for whatever reason between 18-29 years, I just stopped.
I’ve been back doing it the past 4 months, and I honestly just keep surprising myself as to how much I enjoy it. And now how consistent I am of going twice a week.
So moral of the story; you don’t necessarily need an end goal in mind. Just start with the intention of doing 1 workout, or 1 week. No commitments. No pressure.
Just start. And see where it takes you ✌️
