It’s been a little while (okay, a long while) since I stood back and evaluated where I stand with my current goals. So, ladies and gentlemen, here we have it – a run down:
Complete the Adidas 10km walk around the Wellington coastline on 24 June 2012
Yes! Done! It was a great day too, check out my post about it here.
Try working out in the morning before work.
I actually forgot all about this one – and I plan to do it tomorrow. Please oomph, find me at 6am tomorrow!
Treat myself to a new piece of workout gear. Actually, I never got around to doing this seriously. But I bought some nice socks – do they count? No? Okay, maybe I’ll have to keep this goal on the list.
Complete week three of Couch to 5K. This one was knocked out a while ago. Starting on Week Five tomorrow.
Go one day without fizzy drinks (soda) of any kind. Ha! I did this one, too. And I didn’t think it was as easy as it ended up being. I have far, far less soda now than I had before.
And just like every other update – I have three more to fill their place:
Complete week five of Couch to 5K.
Exercise everyday this week.
Track all food I consume this week to find out exactly what I eat.
I’ve been running for a little while now – about, what? Five weeks? I’m not very good at it, but I enjoy it. I’ve found a way to build my C25K training into my routine, and I’m making progress. I’m not running races, but I’m still getting off the couch and running for the sake of it.
So, at what point do I call myself a runner?
Is there a certain amount of time that must pass before I get a figurative Runners Badge? Am I an associate runner, a runner in training?
Or am I runner just for lacing up my shoes and giving it a go?
I’m still not sure.
Today I finished week four of the C25K programme for the second time, and I’m no entirely sure that I’m ready to move on. What’s the take on repeating weeks more than once? I’m bored with week four after the same six runs (4min, 6min, 4min) so I’m going to give week five a shot.
And I’ll be honest – I’m not really feeling it at the moment. Running. Is it because I’m actually bored? Or is it because it’s getting hard? Is it just not my thing?
And does it make me any less of a runner?
