I'm no athlete - although I love sport. I came last in EVERY SINGLE running race I had to participate in through school. Every one.
But a few years ago I decided to do the Couch to 5k running program. Mainly because I bet hubby a camera on completing it. He knew my athletic prowess and thought himself safe... or he hoped to encourage me. Either way I was determined to SHOW HIM.
And I did.
And then I did a 7.5 km run raising money for cancer.
And now I run 4 times a week. I'm still not fast. I suspect my knees turn in and my feet kick out. It's not pretty, but I feel good after. As long as I get through and get into a rhythm I can run for an hour now.
This week I retired the shoes I bought when I decided I'd run. Thanks to my handy app I know they've done 1000km. It's almost impossible to believe but it shows a little at a time adds up.
Now I need to apply that to finishing the work in progress.
