I took up running after Sue, and before Patrice, was born. I loved it then. I now know it was the Lord preparing and providing help for me as I slug through the postpartum depression.
Lately, I have been upping my activity. Saturday I ran my first 10K race. I finished in 1:21:33. A 13:08 minute mile. I know, nothing to write home about, but I ran every single step and I was not the last person to finish.
I have also been taking part in a fitness challenge at work. A co-worker has a friend who is a personal trainer. Her friend gives her clients a fitness challenge every year during the holiday season. It consists of 500 push ups, 5000 crunches, 50 miles running/walking, 50 miles biking, 500 minutes other activity.
Currently, I am over 50% done with pushups, running, and biking. The most challenging one for me is the other activity. But I have hopefully turned that around. I found a set of the Insanity workout by Beachbody on Craigslist for a good price. I started it yesterday. And got up early to do it this morning…The goal is every morning…
