Guided Runs: Week 6 Run 3 Become A Runner
Welcome to Week 6 // Run 3 of my new guided runs!!!
TODAY’S WORKOUT: 1 mile of running (we're going to do 10 minutes), 2 minutes recovery walk ending with 4 x 5 minute run with 1-minute recovery walk between - 42 MINUTES TOTAL.
My name is Kelly Roberts and for most of my life, I was the self-proclaimed president of the "I f*cking hate running club". I’m not athletic. I spent most of my life trying to find ways to avoid running. The only reason I ever found motivation to get to a gym was to obsessively work to try to lose weight.
Then I found myself just desperate enough to become a runner. My life was in a pause. I was drowning in grief after the death of my little brother and struggling to love the skin I was in. I’d just completed a two weight loss journey and successfully lost the 75+ pounds I gained after he passed away. But suddenly, I felt numb and out of control. I didn’t see the strength I worked so hard to build. Running was so difficult and painful that I didn’t have time to feel sorry for myself. It took every single ounce of me to put one foot in front of the other. Simply put, becoming a runner saved my life.
If you're looking for a new challenge or for a way to get active that won't make you hate yourself, spend the next 8 weeks with me. Run a 5K! It's not going to be easy and yes, it's going to hurt like hell but want to know what hurts more? Quitting. The only way you fail is if you fail to try!
My new guided runs are will be available wherever you get your podcasts and each one will follow my free 8-week training plan, “Become a runner in 8 weeks”. Give it a download and then press play.
