Its the DISTANCE!
I know i had all these plans to be running all these 10km races but to be honest its just not a distance that i enjoy running. Having said that i will probably enter a few 10km races for the hell of it but the distances that make my endorphins run HIGH are between 5-8km. Yeah i am fit enough to pump out a 12.5km run at a pretty good pace (71mins) but that length of time does NOT TURN ME ON! It feels more like a chore that i have to endure for calling my little sis names lol. And NO i am not being whimpy either. I have always loved to run FAST, so i would rather get my runners high from smashing out a kick-arse 5-8k'er than jog out a 10+ k'er...hmmm and all for the sake of burning more calories...And well, it doens't end up being much more calories over the course of a week seeing that i end up skipping runs simply because i just don't want to do those distances.
So all that got me thinking. To be in the health and fitness game for the LONG TERM, you HAVE to LOVE your training. Just as Raechelle says too -you need to find a sport/exercise that gives you a high, that makes you happy and that makes you excited to wake up in the morning. Because if you choose one that doesn't, I can just about guarantee that you won't stick at it for long.
On that note, i will post my new running POA in the next few days.
And here are my results for OSB #4:
15/11/2010 Week 2
22/11/2010 Week 3
No change, no surprise....oh and NO PEANUT BUTTER EITHER ;-)
On a fabulous note, i am on HOLIDAYS as of thursday - give me a fuckin WOOT! You have no idea how excited i am! I'm having 2 weeks off, so come thursday i'll be on a plane to Sydney at 8am. Yeah BABY!
