Ran my first 5k and am so proud. I never thought I could or would. With the encouragement of my friends, I began to wonder if I was up to the challenge. It was when two of my coworkers offered to run with me that I decided I would sign up. I doubted I could finish. That was the goal, finish. It was a stretch to publicly start something that I may not finish.
What I quickly discovered was somewhere during my quest for fitness and love of cardio a shift occurred. My body became stronger. I have always had asthma. I carry my inhaler with me at all times. If I ran from my front door to the end of the driveway, I would need my inhaler. In addition to that, I lived with chronic back pain. The combination limited me in what type of exercise I participated in.
I found my soul mate workout in Turbo Kick. At first, I would use my inhaler throughout the class. Each week my endurance grew and now I only use it before I begin. My confidence grew and I stepped out of my comfort zone to try other classes. I am impressed with what I can do without suffering from an asthma attach or back pain. I am still nowhere near the others in my classes, but I don't need to be. I feel good in knowing that I am doing my best!
This week push past your comfort zone. Try something that challenges you in a healthy way. Ask your friends for support and team up with people who want to celebrate your success.
