Sunday I ran a 5K. Ok, maybe ran isn't the best term. I competed in AND finished a 5K. It's took me 46 minutes. I was aiming for under 40. Lofty aspirations I have there!! I am a bit sore, but I guess that's to be expected, going in to this totally untrained. I saw my official stats. I wasn't going to share those, but I need to see my starting point.
Today I start more training. I have to run 3 miles today. I am thinking of going down to the beach, if I'm going to run myself ragged, I want to do it somewhere nice! Tomorrow is cross training, for 2 miles, I am going to do the stairs (Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook)
. I'm not sure how many times I have to do them for 2 miles, but I will find out tomorrow.
I also started tracking my calories today. I need to be accountable for what I eat. All the exercise in the world won't help, if I don't eat healthy. I don't eat fast food, but I have a horrible sweet tooth that is going to be my downfall if I don't get it under control. I had a kitkat for a "snack" and it really wasn't worth it.
I know I'm not going to be a skinny super model, but I want to be healthier - And that means losing weight and exercising.
