Yesterday I registered for my first official 5K race, the Jingle Bell Run, and then I told my family and friends, and by mistake, my trainer. My trainer responded with a smile and said “oh, it’s onnnn.”. (Good Lord help me, Tyron is going to work me into the ground now). I have to show up a half of an hour early today for our work out. I’m dreading it and slightly nervous. But like I told him yesterday while I was bench pressing, “I’ll give anything a shot”. Good attitude, just expect a lot of shaking and sweating.
But now I have to get with it even more than I have….I have 10 weeks to get ready to run. Today at the office I took breaks and climbed flights of stairs and went outside and walked briskly around two blocks.
I know what he has planned for me today as he already warned me. Planks, planks, and more planks followed by the cardio. But not the ordinary planks that I do every day….the hard ones.
This is a commitment I made to myself and I continue to strive to reach new goals every day. Every day. I have 4 reasons written on my bathroom mirror:
- Be Healthy
- Be Strong
- Show Yourself (Prove it)
- Show Him
