I've not always been an active person. Back in my university years, I lived quite the sedentary life: watching TV, playing video games, sleeping. In the past 3-4 years though, I've become very interested in physical exercise. I guess that as you grow older, you start to acknowledge the importance of sports and a healthy lifestyle. Plus, gaining weight is much easier and loosing it becomes way harder... I've started going to the gym 4 years ago and I tried all kind of different classes. The only type of training that provided me with enough motivation to come back the next day was Kangoo Jumps. It was fun, it had an interesting choreography, and good music :). I've been taking KJ classes for almost 4 years now and I still love it. Last summer, the lack of air in the gym became quite the problem for me, so I decided to move towards an outdoor activity: running. At the beginning, running seemed like a tough sport (I was so sore all the time). But with practice, I really started to love it! It gives me a great energy boost, and I get quite euphoric every time I finish a race. The great thing about running (besides its many health benefits) is the fact that it's something that me and my boyfriend do together. We are both quite competitive, so we motivate each other to push our limits.
I remember saying that I would never be able to run a marathon, but I signed up for a 10 km race, which will take place on May 18th at the Bucharest International Half Marathon, and I'm very excited. I'm a pretty slow runner, so there's a chance I'm going to come last :). But I'll for sure have lots of fun!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
