I am not what I would call “fit”. I would love to remedy that but cannot begin to fathom the idea of going to a gym. I have grown pathetically comfortable in my non-physically active lifestyle. I have been contemplating, for months now, the notion of beginning to improve my fitness and well-being. I had kind of talked myself into waiting until the weather was better before I begin any program that would involve outside activity. Now that it is spring, it is time to take that contemplation and turn it into actuality.
So, today begins what I hope becomes a long and fruitful routine in my life. Today I take fhe first steps towards getting more healthy. Today I start a running regimen.
My goal is to be able to run 5 Kilometers straight within 9 weeks. I found The Couch-to-5K-Running-Plan, which looks like a good way to ease me into the world of getting fit.
I hope I can force myself to stick through the initial weeks so that the routine can plant itself into my brain. I post my intentions here so that I can fear the humiliation of failing in this task.
I’ll report back here on my progress as events warrant.
Once I succeed on this task, then perhaps I’ll be in a better condition (physically capable and mentally willing) to take advantage of the goodness that a gym and it’s services could offer me.
