Half Training Has Begun! a.k.a. I’ve Got This

It was a slow run, but it was lovely out.  I decided I can be vexed with how slow I was, or I can look at it as a starting point — a point to look back on and be excited about how much I’ve improved when race day comes in May. 
I choose the latter. 
My goal for this race is to finish in good health.  I may be a little slower than last time, but I may not. It’s too early to tell.  Quite honestly, I am making myself not care so much about the time.  
I’m finding that getting back into regular exercise can be vexing if I allow myself to compare to where I was a while back.  So, I’m choosing to remind myself every minute I spend doing intentional exercise is always better than the years I spent sitting doing nothing.  
When I finished the run I felt good.  My knee wasn’t bothering me and I felt strong.  So, no comparing.  Just hard work and enjoying the fact that I got it done! 
Because I may be slow, but I’ve got this.  🙂

  1. I am the exact same way- constantly comparing my fitness now with how I was a couple years ago. But you have to begin somewhere. Looking forward to reading your blog!
