Becoming a Free Athlete

I was supposed to go running. I didn’t get to. I’m disappointed in myself. Even though I’m disappointed, I at least finished my body weight workouts. I’m quite proud of that. I’m proud that no matter what, I will do it no matter how much I have to pushing myself to continue. Sure… I may still have problems doing a full set of workouts at certain times, but I’m doing this for me. I’m competing against my own self so that I may become who I know I should become.

Instead of cowardly running away from challenges. I’m hoping that I can learn to embrace them. I am hoping that no matter how much I have to break my outer shell, I’ll end up looking forward to becoming my best self. What about you? If you feel like you are not getting anywhere in life, then I’d say start exercising. You may of not have exercised before or done it in so long, but just get your body to create momentum so it knows that you are willing to do anything to accomplish your dreams and aspirations.

Freeletics – Day 18 – Running With the Wind

Last night, I decided to go back to running while doing my body weight training. I thought that I would be exhausted and would have to start all over again, but I was wrong.

Today, I took my friend to work and I decided to do my running again around the neighborhood. I had to do a 4k run this time, and thought I wouldn’t be able to do it. Honestly, I thought that I would be tired from running last night, and I never done a 4K run just yet.

To my surprise, I was still able to breathe just fine while completing my run. I think I’m getting used to running. I’m starting to enjoy running. I used to listen to music while running, but I find myself just listening to podcasts. I like enjoying the weather outside when I’m out on a run. I used to get paranoid when people drive by and see me but I don’t care anymore.

I”m just trying to figure out if people run in the rain or when it snows. If you’re the person who has done that before and have some tips. Please share in the comments below.

Freeletics – Week 2 Day 4 – Pulling

So I actually wasn’t able to workout for the past couple of days. Rather, I think I was just too lazy and I’m actually just making the excuse of why I did not work out. I went to work and while I was at work, I figured I mind as well do a workout routine. Even though I started in the middle of the week, it was better than waiting a whole week to pass to do it on a Monday.

I open my app excited thinking to myself that this workout was going to be easy. After all, I had to do lunges before the main program. Easy.

After I got done, I proceeded the full workout routine and noticed all I had to do was pullups and pushups. Mind you that, pull-ups are my weakness. That and legs. I ended up taking 25 minutes to finish the program. I took so many breaks because my arms were on fire. I still managed to finish though.

No matter how long it takes you to complete something. Always be persistent and follow through.
