Since there is too much stuff going on this week the second round of the C25K has been postponed until Tuesday of next week. Also, I have been day dreaming of a vacation to Hawaii. Why? Because of surf, sun, and water my friend. I also have not been on a plane in twenty years and I am a bit anxious about that. I am suppose to visit my friend and her husband in DC in June. Vacations are expensive and and Hawaii is really expensive. I’ll have to save every penny I have got before making any plans to go there, and besides I would want to lose weight even more so that I can look good in a bathing suit. 🙂
So while looking for flights my mind wandered and I was thinking of the warm beach sand and ocean water. The pictures look so beautiful and I would love to take pictures and video and make a ton of memories. With my luck I’ll get sunburned really bad because I hate putting sunscreen on. I have never liked the feel of it on my skin. I do like the sun and warmth, but I hate the heat and I do not do so well in 80 degree weather. Weather that is 73-75 degrees is perfect though for me. I know I am a weirdo. ^_^;

I wanted to talk more about the 5k that I walked this past Saturday. I was really tired and a bit dehydrated, but I made it and next time I have to learn to drink water and walk. Even though the weather was perfect the sun got to me a little bit. It was fun seeing all those dogs there. When I walked a 5k before it took me anywhere from two to three hours to finish. I am happy that I got it down to one and half hours to finish. I still think I need a lot more training to do before I can actually start running a 5k. I need to keep the food demons away as well.
Since I used the race as a substitute for my C25K app Week 8 – Day 2 because there will be no post about that day because obviously the race counts. The last day of the training app is today. I will probably do that in the gym because now it is getting warmer outside. I will still run with my running partner early in the morning on Saturdays before sunrise so that we both do not bake in the sun. We will start the training over, but first we will take a week off to rest. Initially, in the app after you finish it says to take a week off before you to your 5k race. But, in this case it is going to be a week off and then start the training over to hone more running skills.

Okay so I do not own a dog, but I ran…err…walked this 5k race today. I honed in my training and did better than I expected. I must though learn to drink water while walking. If I can master that then I can master drinking water while running. I am just not coordinated enough for it I suppose. Today was a real test and I think I got slightly sunburned despite the perfect weather outside. I miss my dog that I had for a good portion of my childhood and into my young adulthood. I had to put her down in 2009 and I miss her everyday. I want a dog again at some point and as a running partner. I met a lady with her dog that was a Vizsla dog named Bella and she had done the thing I was thinking about. She got a dog as a running partner and said that that breed had high energy. She lost forty pounds training with the dog. I can not get a dog right now until I finish a few career goals first and have more time to take care of a dog. It would not be fair to the animal if I was busy most of the time and if I get a high energy breed.
So I just wanted to say a quick blog post and I will recoup my energy. I think I am a bit dehydrated so I am going to go rest and eat dinner and write another blog about it tomorrow. I just wanted to write a short re-cap/summary. Wish me well! 🙂

I want to try and make it a habit or practice to blog everyday. I know it is hard to do when you have a busy schedule or you get tired or whatever the excuse is, but I am willing to try my best despite what may come up in my life. Having a health/fitness blog is a new concept to me and I am not used to having my own domain website. I have blogged in the past on other platforms so I am familiar with the blogging concept. I hope that makes sense to my audience of what I am trying to say. I want to blog about my life surrounding my journey as well. I do not want to lose readers so if the title has a fitness or training kind of title then it is more than likely about health and fitness. If it has a different slice of life title for the blog entry then that is what it is. If you do not care and read all my posts then that is great! I am happy either way. I can not promise to blog everyday, but I do want to promise to blog often.
I have plans to link my YouTube channel on this site for videos of when I go on hikes or 5K’s or other adventures. Maybe I might put a slice of life video about my life. This is still up for debate because I do not know if I want people to see me. I am not camera shy, but I do not know if I could handle it if my site or the YouTube channel got popular. Being popular or a web success does come with the cons as well as the pros. No matter what you do and I do not care what anyone else says, but there will always be haters, trolls, and whatever dark things you can imagine. I also have to think about if I can handle those situations too or how to handle them. I mean obviously I can ignore and/or ban people and move on with my life like it is not a big deal. I just do not want to stress about it and then again I want to inspire people so that is one of the big reasons I am blogging. I am not a shallow person and my goal is not to make money off of YouTube videos or my blog. I want to be able to connect with people and meet different types of people, smile, enjoy life, and enjoy laughter. Life is short so make the very best of what you have, do not take things for granted, enjoy what you have and not chase after material things or people, cherish the people in your life, and cherish every moment.
Yesterday, I made the mistake of running uphill in the parking lot. Because I did not realize it was slanted. I pushed my way through even though I verbally told my running partner I was going to die. She reassured me I was not dying and after the run I actually did not literally die, but I felt like I metaphorically died in every sense of the word. My next run is Saturday morning at eight in the morning. Tonight I do my two hours of dancing because I am a glutton for punishment.
In hindsight though, this will all be worth it down the road. If I keep at it and and I do not give up I will then reap the rewards of my efforts. I just have to stay focused and positive…right?
