Recently I saw the London Alethics 2017 on BBC and it has got me extremely motivated to get moving. Coincidentally it collided with a new habit I am trying to form, and this was running.
I have been running for almost 4 weeks, currently on my fifth. Thus, it is about a month since I have started. Unfortunately, the unpredictable weather here is quite a nuisance that forever prevents me to run as I want to every morning.
In previous times I have ran for only a couple of weeks until I called it quits. I don’t real remember why. But I do know it had something to do with my sister who was my running budding returning to the City to study. Since then I haven’t been running until now.
Honestly I think it is one of the best decisions I have made. And I think you should do it too!
I used to be extremly self conscious but now I don’t feel it anymore. Perhaps it’s because I have taken the first step in stepping out the door that it has made me more confident.
After my first run I realised it wasn’t so bad and it was something I could grow to love. Never in my whole life would I think this way. 🤣
Then I saw a documentary called “Born to Run” on YouTube about the Kenyan runners and their aspirations to become great runners and I was immediately filled with great motivation to run.
The next day I ran my first mile without stopping to walk and it was also my first time running 8km. I was thrilled about it! What was even stranger is that I felt like I wanted to run more and I didn’t want to go home! I have never felt this way before with running! It was super strange but at the same time exhilarating.
Even as I write this I am looking forward to my next run. Perhaps it has inspired you to consider running too? Give it a go, I know for sure it will be worth it. 😉
Here’s a quote that I believe is extremly relevant to this post. Do you think so? If so get moving! Maybe it’s not running but something like horse riding, dancing, yoga that you are interested in. Either way keep moving; lest you want to have a sore butt for sitting too long! Hahahaha. It may be funny but true!
Have an amazing day everyone!
