I had my lower body workout at the gym today. It was a disaster. I did my 5 sets of 10 reps on the leg extension machine - I even lowered the weight to almost nothing - but it still hurt my knee. Running does not hurt my knee and I am NOT going to risk not running because of leg extensions! I should have quit as soon as I realized it was going to hurt. I am kicking myself right now. I did my leg curls and presses (which did not hurt thankfully). The thing that really
On a happier note - I have decided that I am going to run my first 5k on April 1st. I am so excited! I'm going to get my registration in the mail tomorrow! I can't wait! I know it's only a few weeks away and I'm only in the second week of my couch to 5k program, but I know I can do it. I actually had been running 3.1 miles 3 days a week for the past month, but I realized I was going about training the wrong way. Since I wanted to improve my times, I started the C25K program. It might take me 50 minutes to finish but I WILL finish! Who knows, maybe the excitement of race day will spur me on to a PR!!
I came up with a list of 38 things I am going to accomplish by the time I turn 38 next year. WOW, accomplishing those things will make SUCH a huge difference in my life! I'm VERY excited for the future! I'm really looking forward to checking those goals off as I reach them! I know it won't always be easy. I know I will come up against obstacles - I'm not foolish, I'm realistic! I think as long as I do one thing, I will get through. What's that one thing? Easy!! KEEP MY EYES ON THE PRIZE!!
