Reporting for Duty

Recommended Posts


First off let's start with some mushy heartfelt stuff! I want to say it's good to be here. I've been a lurking for a little while and figured it's time to buck up and join in the fun. :) It seems like there's a great bunch of supportive, up-beat people around here that I can't wait to meet and talk to.

Well then now that I've said hello...allow me to introduce myself!

I'm a 20-year old lady, coming in at only 4'10" (and 3/4"!), I'm short and stocky, and I am rather lacking in the grace department but don't let it fool you- I'm quick when I want to be, whether it be beating a kid in an impromptu foot-race, or stealing the last fry from off your plate when you aren't looking.

But, there are of course things I would like to change. That is why I am here!

In general I just want to be stronger, leaner, and quicker. In the near future I want the body weight exercises I do now to be just what I do as a warm-up. Also, running has always been completely foreign to me, and I'm only just now starting to see myself doing it as regular exercise. So, one small goal of mine is to be able to run a mile by the end of the month without feeling like I am going to die afterwards. :) It's small but hey, you gotta start somewhere.

That's my story! ...for now. I'll see you all on the boards. Feel free to say hey :)

Hey! and welcome.

A couple of months ago, I could not run a mile for my life, and last sunday I finished my Second 5k!, you just need to start moving, take it slow and build from there!, I followed (kinda) a c25k program, it's really good and keeps you moving without allowing much room for injuries.

Best of luck, and make sure you check out the 6 week challenge, it's a great way to set some short-term goals, and keep track of them.
