So this whole running thing started with the wedding, and I'm hoping it doesn't end with the wedding actually.
I've enjoyed it immensely, though I struggled keeping myself focused on running, and it became a chore starting the run, but when I got out there it got easier.
It was always easier to finish and push hard at the end, knowing I could finish and have a shower and feel good about myself.
I felt even better when I completed a big run, it felt like such a triumph.
Not only in my running and my ability to keep pushing and get through long distances now without stopping. I've seen a greater improvement in everyday activities.
Walking briskly up a hill or around the shops or having a busy day, I see the fitness improvement, as I remember back to when I would work up a sweet and start breathing heavy just by walking up the hill that I live on.
Being able to fit into clothes that 12 months ago I couldn't and more to that, I didn't think I would be fitting into it. The number on scale doesn't really fell like a great triumph, and I've been always thinking if I got down to 57 kgs then I be happy, that'd be my goal weight. But really I should have just been aiming to fit into my clothes again!! Its a better feeling then the number on the scale!!
|Couldn't fit into this dress in January!!!|
And that itself is great encouragement to keep on running.
