I'm new and just about to start this journey. Just wondered if anyone who is planning on training those days wanted to check in occasionally after each week? Or is that happening and I've missed it? Can't run and can't use technology well
I have run in the past, however, after several medical issues I needed to take care of my health. Now I would like to do a 5K. I am turning 50 in January and I have signed up for a 5K in March. Excited, nervous, and looking for others in the same boat! Lets sink or swim together!!
Hey everyone! Just a post to make things public, and wanting to declare it to myself infront of the world. To be honest, I do feel very embarrassed to share this on Facebook etc, where people know who I am. I do hold a lot of anxiety, as I have tried to have support buddies, but they got lazy and Ended up bailing out... Or when I do something or even just post about exercise my best mate thinks I am making a personal attack on her because I am "capable"? ... Don't get me wrong, lovely person however she makes her self out to be very mentally disabled and self sabotages. For example, I teamed up with a very successful life coaching/counselling company, paid them to help her out, with a weekend face to face course and told them to just let her think she won it, as she will kill me if she found out what I did. She said she really wanted to do it but came up with 100 problems why she can't and told them to pass the prize on. Sorry, that's a little rant, but something I really wanted to get off my chest, because I don't want her to know what I did. To keep the secret, I can't tell anyone... But she can take up the "prize" when she is upto it, it is always there. So I am sick of people saying "that's awesome! I wish I could do that but <insert excuse>" ... Because in some way, shape or form, I believe everyone can do it, and hearing the disguised negativity and other peoples excuses is bringing me down. So here, and in a hopefully supportive environment, I am holding myself accountable to finish the 10K trainer! I timed it so week 15 (graduating week) of the trainer, I will be running the community 10k run in September. I want to successfully run the entire course this year. No half-tried attempts like the previous years I have done it... And I will post up progress every week along the way! This week I have done week one, and am feeling motivated. Just have to not burn out that motivation and keep it up.
