Week one is done and I feel so far from my goal. For 2012 I had wanted to start the Dukan Diet and continue to learn yoga but with my sisters
nagging encouragement I had registered myself for a 12K run knowing that I am not a runner! or a jogger for that matter. Still I found myself motivated to, at the very minimum, beat my sister and of course not cross the finish line 2 days after the race begins. I started to research running a 12K for beginners but every site I looked up started with, "this workout was designed for the person who can already run a half an hour." That was not me....I was lucky to be able to run 1 minute at a time. I am happy to announce that I can now officially run .....wait for it......2 minutes without stopping. Okay, maybe to you it is not much of an achievement but running is HARD! I was able to complete my first weeks training even adding one additional session. I continued to eat most everything I wanted but tried to refrain from potato chips and other empty calories (Ice cream was my couch companion and that is not going to change) Over all I feel pretty good. 12K still seems so far from now but like the sign says, I am still lapping everybody on the couch.
