Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Golden Goddess of Running

This is week 8 of the 9-week c25k program. That's 2 months of running. Two months of feeling like I might throw up and pass out - and hoping I don't do them at the same time. BUT I'm still waiting.

Still waiting on that Running Goddess body to appear, bright and shiny like a golden statue, everything put back in it's rightful place (ie: boobs no longer hiding in my underpants), freedom from the jiggle-butt syndrome, maybe even longer hair and fewer grays.

Am I asking too much? I even gave up cookie dough and along with that part of my sanity.

Fine. At this point, I'd settle for feeling less like a massive squatting toad. Still, the golden statue effect would be super.

sidenote: My IRL friend, Miss Scares-me-a-little, has a fabulous story about a lady who's boobs did actually hide in her pants. For the record, mine do not. Yet.

Ew gross - I'd rather not hear that in real story.

Congrats on making it two months running - that's hard work, isn't it! Treat yourself to something special!

That is totally amazing. You have good reason to be very proud! Don't you feel at all better?

and BTW... That golden goddess body? -it's fictitious.

You're doing phenomenal!! At that point when I tried it we got hit with about three colds in a row, and I have yet to start back up....

It takes time, but I hear it gets easier and actually addicting. Who knows though!

Cortney @ evanhaslanded.com said...

good for you! I still haven't given up cookie dough though. Those cravings are why I run : )

Amy said...

You can do it. My Round Robin is tomorrow if you want to join in.

You will get there! And I'm sure there is a local salon that will bronze you or gold-coat you.
Also, Corinne is right. Running does get addictive in a very strange way. You just have to hit that point. But please note I am NOT saying that it's addictive like, you know, cookies and cream ice cream. If given the choice ... :)

I am sure that running Goddess body is on it's way!

Michelle said...

Wow, great job! Is that 30 minutes straight at week 8? I forget. Because I haven't been there since June of 2008. You're making me feel like a slug. But go you!

Julia said...

I need your motivation. You are a Goddess and will be the running Goddess too!!! :)

Jennifer said...

Wow. I'm impressed. I was going to try thing until I realized that the "brisk walk" was hard enough for me. Maybe after that gets easier I will give it another try.

Hold the phone. I'm assuming your "jiggle-butt" is different than MY "jiggle-butt?" Because who doesn't love a little jiggle-butt now and again? :)

I'm with you sister. I run, what feels like, all the time and nothin'! I have even lost my craving for sweets, to a certain extent. Why is the jiggle still here, inhabiting my body?
