Running Week 1

I have been running intermittently  for a few months now. I sometimes run for a cardio workout or other times just to feel nice about some fresh air on my face while running on the roads. I then started thinking if I have to bring a structure to my running, i need to be working towards  a goal. Something that motivates me to run, something to feel good about. It  surely is a great feeling when you push yourself to do better than before,but I wanted a reason to run that is more than just about me.

In the past few weeks, I have been having a lot going on in my plate. Taking up a new job, moving cities and finding a new place to live. Being an ASHA volunteer for almost 2 years now, i quickly checked ASHA SF page to see what they have going on there and then I saw the page for Team-ASHA SF. It just seemed perfect! Run to raise funds and I said Yes, I want to do this.

Week 1 of training : I started with short 1-mile runs during the week either in the treadmile or on the roads. Sunday I did about 2 miles. I am a slow runner so I dint bother much about my timing. What bothers me most is my ability to sustain and endure 2 miles without stopping. I can feel my calves killing me and I can feel my body saying stop now and I give in to it. Though i can do 2 miles I just am not able to endure long distance. Something I really want to work on.

If I had to choose between a roller coaster ride and a fancy dinner night, I would be screaming at the top of my voice in the ride and look out for the camera to give a big smile. I think i have to have a job and earn money so that I can travel, meet new people, see new things and write more n more. Given a choice I would just have fun tonite but I live in a world where I need to be doing more than just that.
