My first week as a runner




Alright, so I have just completed my first week as a runner and I am happy to report that I am proud of myself. The training plan I found had me run 1.5 miles three days; it felt awesome. My first attempt was on Tuesday and it was evident that I had not run in a very long time. I had to walk for some of it. I tried again and Thursday and to my total excitment I was able to run the whole thing. I know 1.5 miles is not a lot but it is a big deal for me. So then to challenge myself on Saturday I did my run mostly uphill. Look at the map, I run around the temple. And if you were a regular temple attender you would know that it is on a hill. I did the run and felt great afterwards. I am really pumped about this goal. I have met a girl in one of my classes that is going to help me get into swimming and I am going to get a couple girls in my ward into biking. Heart healthy lifestyle is awesome. So there is my update. This next week I am doing 1.75. I have already mapped out my path and am excited to try it out.
