Day 3 – The Gold’s Experiment

I HATE RUNNING! 

The word RUN is a dirty word to me. I despise running, it is my least favourite thing to do exercise wise. Why? I honestly don’t see the point. My husband on the other hand would run for kilometres – he gets some kind of enjoyment out of it.

It seems though, that Gold’s is having this impression on me. This morning I did a 5km run/walk. I can already see the shocked responses from my CrossFit friends – I am the ultimate whinger when it comes to running!

I made the decision last night that I would run this morning. I need to learn to love it, and be good at it. When my alarm went off this morning I turned it off – good thing I set that second alarm otherwise I would have been sleeping til my husband got up. Second alarm went off – dressed and off to the gym.

I walked in and looked at the line of treadmills – my worst enemy. The best thing about Gold’s is there is so much equipment you don’t have to work out next to someone, and I never thought I would say this, but I am loving working out on my own, listening to my own music. 

I started slow this morning, making sure I got my heart rate going before I hit my stride. 5kms later, I was feeling amazing. Listening to good music definitely helps. I couldn’t believe that I had managed to run/walk that entire time.
