I am trying my best to change my body. I want to rebuild it, reform it, nurture it and reshape it. I know that running can and will do this. This is not a pursuit for vanity or to stroke my ego. This is a quest, a mission to get my body healthy with a kick-ass immune system and to keep myself Cancer-Free!
Therefore my goals are different to the average runner. We probably have similar goals but mine varies somewhat – same-same only different! I have no desire to participate in races. I am not mad about running in large groups because I am not competitive. I have no interest in social running either. This is ME TIME DAMMIT!
So my Number One goal is to keep me Healthy – I need to keep my weight down, minimal body fat equals less oestrogen equals less cancer, lean musculature means reduced impact on my bones (which are fragile), healthy heart and lungs (added bonus great legs and booty) and a revitalized Liver (which we can’t live without)… Therefore I am required to exercise daily for at least 30 minutes. I really struggled to do this at first because my body does not like to exercise everyday. It basically goes into shock and screams out ‘Fuck You!’ and decides to get back at me by getting a Cold!
So far so good… Body be kind to me!
