You may be wondering why I decided on the title I chose. Well about 2 months ago I decided to become a runner. I am a very slow runner, otherwise known in the running world as a turtle. I am determined to become faster and maybe someday become a racer. Therefore, I chose breaks out of her shell. Join me on my journey. As this turtle breaks out of her shell.

Slow Going

A few days ago, I said that I would be running again Monday. I also said I would post how it went. Well, it went  HORRIBLE!!! I thought since I had taken a week off, I would be back to my old self. Well, it hasn't turned out that way. When I started my run, I felt great I ran quicker than I ever had for the first mile. Then, I slowly started to become wore down. I had to walk/ run the rest of the workout. I felt so frustrated. I wanted to scream !!!

Then today, I went back to try again. Same thing!!! I started out strong, then gradually became weaker. By the time I was finished I was exhausted. I feel like I am starting all over. I have read a lot of blogs about running and working out, and they have said that this could happen. So, I guess I will start from this point, and gradually build up again. I guess I will just listen to my body, and take the good as well as the bad. I am just thankful, I am able to run and strength train at all. I am going to work on taking this negative and turning it into a positive.

Maybe you should make smoothies with protein powder. I have been doing this and it seems to be giving me more energy. Keep up the good work. You are doing better than me.
