I officially completed the Couch to 5K workout program today! I’m excited for my progress, but I’m sad to say that I’m not actually running a 5K distance . . . my pace is still too slow. BUT, considering where I came from, and how out of shape I was in the beginning, I’m thankful that I can actually jog for 30 minutes straight! Now I’m going to start working on my speed a little bit so that I can actually run a 5K in 30 minutes.
With that said, I saw a quote on Pinterest recently that really got my attention.
No matter how awful I’ve felt after a workout, I’ve never regretted completing it.
What do I regret?
All those times I should (and could) have worked out that I chose to be lazy instead.
All those times that I should have gotten up early to workout, but chose to sleep in instead.
All those times that I ate food without considering the effect it was having on my body.
All those times I told myself that it really didn’t matter.
All those times I told myself that I couldn’t do it or that it was too hard.
The years that I have spent neglecting my health (eating and exercise).
BUT, I think I may have changed. I think I’m on a road to less regrets when it comes to my health. Sure, I know I’ll have ups and downs when it comes to taking care of my body. But, hopefully, I’m finally on the path where the ups greatly outnumber the downs.
