Sometimes I'm very impulsive. Not often. And not usually recklessly. But sometimes I have a decision to make and knowing that I tend to overanalyze things I just decide without thinking things through completely.
Yesterday I impulsively agreed to run the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. So not only do I have to begin training for my longest run ever, but I have to do it outside. It's for a great cause and having lost an aunt to breast cancer 2 years ago, I thought this would be a nice way to honour her. But...I agreed to run 5K!
And today it hit me that not only have I never run 5K in my life, but I haven't run outside since those horrible high school gym classes when they forced us to run up the hill behind my school and I would try to get out of it by claiming to have menstrual cramps (to which the teacher responded that running is good for cramps. Damn.). I stopped taking phys. ed. as soon as it became optional - grade 11, I think.
It's not that I don't like working out. I go to the gym every once in a while (not as consistently as I would like, but a couple times a week...unless of course other things come up LOL). But I DO NOT like to run. I especially don't like to run outside where the weather is unpredictable. When I run outside I have trouble breathing and I get stomach cramps every 10 seconds or so. Which is why I don't run.
I really should have thought this out better.
