I had a dream last night that Nate wanted to move us out to California. I thought it was cool and would be a lot of fun but when we started talking more about it I started having anxiety and my palms were getting all sweaty. I was literally having a panic attack in my dream. I was thinking but what if I got pregnant I wouldn’t have any help and I’d have to have my baby out there. I woke up trying to figure out if it was real or not and was listing the pros and cons in my head. Weird. Very Weird. Any who …
If you read my What I Learned this Weekend post on Monday you know that I want to try to run. You’re probably thinking where in the world did this come from. Well …
One of my best friends lives in Chicago and we’ve known each other ever since we were in Kindergarten. In fact, we lived with each other throughout college and even shared a bedroom for two years. I was talking with her this past week and she was telling me about this marathon that she ran. I was thinking that she was going to say she ran a 10k or something like that. No, this girl ran 26 miles. 26 miles!!! Are you freaking kidding me. I literally almost fell off my chair. First off how in the world do you run 26 miles and second off why in the world would you run 26 miles?
After I hung up the phone with her it got me thinking, if she can run 26 miles I can at least run
1 3 miles. Right? I’ve always wanted to like running because it would be so easy for me to get in a workout. With my total workout being 30 minutes rather then 3 hours. Pilates class is fun and I really enjoy it but to get CK all packed up, trying to time up his naps with my class, drive 30 minutes and then workout it’s just not really worth it to me. It’s time consuming, draining and just too much at the moment. All I want to do is walk out my door run off some steam and come back half hour later feeling freshed. Is this too much to ask?
I am a little nervous, I’ve tried running a few times but I pretty much gave up because it was so boring and I felt like I was going to die. And honestly who wants to feel like they’re dying?
But I want to try again and I’ve heard that once you get past a certain point; it actually starts becoming enjoyable. I wish I could just fast forward to the fun part and not go through all the hard work but I can’t. So my out of shape behind that literally jiggles when I run or jog (thanks to pregnancy) is going to try this again.
I’m not really sure where to start, but I did download the app Couch to 5K. Anyone have this app? How did you add music or Can I just put Pandora on and still have the prompts come through?
So, I guess my next step is to actually get running shoes. I have tennis shoes but they are from like 2 years ago; I think it’s time for a new pair.
Any recommendations on what shoes to get?
Which ones do you have and do you love them?
