314- I don’t know how to run

I have to admit I don’t know how to run.  Growing up athleticism wasn’t my forte. The longest I have run is 100 meters and that was when I was 10 years old during my school field day.

A few weeks back, I set an action to run 2 miles at 5mph  in the treadmill.  What I learned was that was an unrealistic goal for me.  This meant looking back at my goal and set out a realistic action.

As it was suggested by  my coach, maybe I should ask for help. I started out emailing to her referral with questions how did you get started and asking for tips. I got great feedback as to how I can make my actions more realistic.  This meant starting to walk and then run a mile and then walk again.

As I started to get motivated with this action and started to do it. I realized is actually do-able with my time  since its not going to be a 4 hour run.

More fears set in.  Where am I going to run? What am I going to wear? How do I start running?  Are there any running groups in the area.  Just like I did a few weeks ago, I decided to ask for help. This time around I ask most of my friends, acquaintances, etc. for suggestions, tips for someone who is beginning to run. I have to say the amount of feedback I received it was just the motivation I needed.  I vow to incorporate one or two actions per week that I will share in this blog.

I am off to interval training- 30/60/90 and for a quick run.
