I Am Doing Something Crazy … The Update.
First I want to thank you all for your encouragement and your tips and tricks that you shared with me last week. I survived that morning and even surprised myself & I went running 3 days last week. three people! I am here with an update on what I learned last week and hoping to pick your brain with a few more questions.
1. I am no good at running. seriously i suck. BUT each run I was able to run for a longer period and I can only get better from here. right?
2. There has got to be something better out there for the ‘girls’. I read somewhere that running/jogging is the worst exercise for your breasts & I believe it. Right now I am wearing 3 bras. three – just to keep everything stabilized. I need to get some sort of super-sonic sports bra. Something that will fit and work and be comfortable. Any ideas??
3. I am afraid of falling. It is winter here and I am running on the sidewalks. Where i live the city is notoriously bad at keeping their sidewalks clear of snow and ice and i am scared! I break easily. I fall easily and I am crazy for doing this in the winter.
So the plan peoples is to do the couch to 5k program. It makes sense to me and it lets me start off slow (so i don’t feel like a failure!) and so many of you recommended it to me. I am going to try to stick with this and will update you on my progress (or lack of). I wont be tracking my weight because – well i don’t want to obsess over those numbers. So i will use my running ability as a tracker on how i am doing.
I plan to run 3-4 times a week – sometimes early in the morning and sometimes later in the evening. I have two running partners but even this week when neither were able to make it for our Friday run – I went myself. shocker right. seems so simple. but it was cold out, it was late and i had a million excuses not to go but i did.
:: I would love to hear your suggestions on the best running bras, any words on encouragement and if you exercise where do you find the time? ::
