Psyching My-Newbie-Self Up!

Recommended Posts

I hoping that putting my story out there and stating, "I will start tomorrow" is the final incentive I need to actually start tomorrow!

I've been scared to hit that "Start" button on C25K for the last six weeks and am really tired of procatinating.


I am a 46 year old woman, was moderately active and at a happy weight until 2 1/2 years ago when I dislocated and broke my ankle while ice-skating with my two young kids.  It required surgery, a plate and six screws (which I still have).  The recovery was somewhat difficult and it still bothers me from time to time so I've been pretty cautious with it.

Since the accident then I've packed on 40 pounds and am now desperate to lose it and get my old active self back.  Actually, I'm hoping for a better self now.


Over the last two months I've gotten my 3 or 4-day/week workout (mostly walking with a teeny bit of jogging) down to my best today of 6.6km at 1.05:44 hour, 9:58 min/km (using MapMyRun). Hoping that's not too bad. So, no more procrastinating, tomorrow is the day I press start! And, I really mean it this time! :)
