When I started working full time I was always too tired and lazy to do sport or cook healthy foods. So before I realised it, I had put on a lot of weight. I wasn’t happy with myself anymore and wanted to hide away. So I looked for something new to challenge me - because if it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you!!
I never really did much running before - I did Freeletics bodyweight the year before but I felt too unfit to do that again. I didn’t think running would be that hard. But at the beginning I was wrong. I didn’t know how unfit I had become! I had to fight through the running workouts my app coach gave me and after the intervals I sometimes felt like I was dying... But I didn’t stop because I really wanted to get in shape again!
So I kept running. Even in gross weather. The coach gave me lots of different workouts and distances to run, so I did. And after a while I got better and faster! I was really happy, but then I injured myself and couldn’t run anymore. I thought all my work was going to be for nothing and I got really demotivated.....
But after a few weeks I could run again, so I kept going. And that was when I saw changes. The pounds started really dropping and I got better and faster!! It was so motivating! It’s awesome to get your confidence back and feel good at a sport after feeling bad about your body for so long!!!
I ran 3 - 4 times a week. Sometimes alone and sometimes with a group. I actually made some really cool girlfriends on my journey and I’m really happy I met them because they helped me to keep going.
It was tough, but for me it was worth it! I’m really proud that this time, I didn’t give up. I really love my “new” body and I didn’t think I could transform so much by running. I feel really fit, confident and happy. And I still love to run, because it clears my head and makes me feel good. So try it! Anyone can run. Even if you start slow like me - anything can happen if you keep going! If I can do it, so can you!! Just believe in yourself!
I hope I can inspire some of you to start your own transformations!!
