Last year I did boxing classes (30-minute hit), it was good for around 6 months, then it got repetitive and I just quit. I was going once a month in the end.
I am trying to start to run since 2010, I researched blogs, I bought apps, I did a bullet journal, but you know, this is all beautiful on paper or when you say aloud but the actual first step outside, the short breath, the feeling that you’re going to die. No blog prepare you for this.
Do you know how to run?
I mean, really?
Do you know, know?
Well, I didn’t. That’s why I always gave up.
I am from Winnipeg, this amazing cold city with great parks. And I love Instagram and I follow some parks accounts like @theforkswinnipeg and @fortwhytealive, and one of them shared this amazing course of “Learn to Run” and I went for it!
And the first day the temperature was -10C.
We learned to dance-walk.
1. Run in the same spot
2. Now move
And this is how you run. Slow and steady.
Nobody is looking at you. If people are judging you it’s their problem.
Just have fun!
Am I the last?
And then she said:
No, the last person is the one on the couch at home.
I must say that it’s easier everyday, but it’s painful a day later (penguin walk all day). Also, before starting I couldn’t do 1 squatch, now I do 50! Yaaay!! We have to celebrate the little victories too!
June 1st is my first official run: the Pride Run.
How cool is that?
