I’m feeling really good today as I finished the last “day” of the Couch25K training app! There are 9 “weeks” of training and I believe I started about 3 1/2 months ago, so I guess that’s not too bad! The last week has you run for 30 minutes straight, although today I felt like I could have gone for a few more. I’m hoping that I can keep the momentum going so that I can actually run a real 5K sometime in maybe April?
In other exciting news, I booked my flight for a wedding I’m going to in Florida in April. I’ve only flown one other time in my life to Las Vegas in November 2011, at my heaviest weight of 444 lbs and a year before I started the supervised diet. It was NOT a pleasant experience and of course, I had to buy a second seat. I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like flying as a normal sized person. I can’t figure out why it is that I STILL feel anxiety about whether or not I’ll need a seat belt extender – or if I’ll fit into one seat. Maybe it’s just because I’ve never flown before without the anxiety? It’s irrational, but it’s there!
It’s great though that I’ll be able to cross a few things off of my “30 by 30” list. It’s amazing to me that I’ve already crossed off a decent amount of things – and that I’m looking to cross off #s 1, 4, 5, and 13 by the end of April! The NSVs are flowing and I’m hoping they keep on coming! Life is good!
