When you think of running, how fast are you thinking? Run a mile in under 11 minutes, that's pretty solid, right? Kelly Osbourne, she's trying to get on her fit game. The 27-year-old TV personality tweeted yesterday, "Just ran/walked 4 miles in under an hour ... Exhausted but loving it!"
I'm just gonna throw this out there: if she walked the whole thing at a 15-minute/mile pace, she would have done it in about an hour. Heck, I'm not judging her though. In fact, I think her pace is freakin' awesome.
What's important here is that Kelly is getting out and active. What's NOT important is how fast she's going or how long it takes her to finish her workout. The fact that she's committed to getting out there in the first place is a huge hurdle, one that many women struggle with overcoming.
I've been there. Heck, I remember a time in my life where it took me almost 10 minutes to "run" a half mile. However, soon that half mile became a full mile, the full mile became several, and before I knew it -- I was running in my fifth half marathon.
It's all about setting your mind to a goal and working toward it. Clearly, Kelly is looking to keep active and work on her fitness routine. I wouldn't be surprised if a few months from now, we're seeing tweets from Ms. Osbourne saying she's signed up for her first 5K and showing off that bikini bod. Baby steps, my friends. Baby steps.
Are you active? If so, what is your favorite way to work out?
