And then she told me I was going to run 4 miles with her. In a race. Me.
I told her that the last time I ran was for a bus in Europe 5 years ago. And before that I was in 9th grade P.E. class. But she was undeterred. So I promised her I'd think about it. I haven't stopped thinking of it since.
I ride my bike every day. I do fat people workouts with Bob Harper. I feel better toned and more fit than ever before. But. I. Don't. Run.
I would like to. I kind of would. Even though I know if I tried it in a quarter mile my lungs would start burning or my side would ache or I'd see a candy machine and I'd stop. Or maybe I wouldn't. Maybe I'm not a quitter anymore.
What do you think? Advice? Is there any way that a non-runner could run 4 miles with 3 weeks to train?
