I Did It! I Ran for 15 Minutes Straight by the Beach!

I said in my previous posting that I will report back – well, I excelled my expectations!

I think I did it because:

  • I wrote out the Runners World beginners running program on one sheet of A4 that I put in front of me on the wall next to my computer. So I always see it when working on the computer.
  • I worked out the distances involved and wrote them down. This got me more involved in thinking the task, imagining I am there and what that would involve.
  • I took a comforting item with me (my mobile phone as my stop-watch) and wore clothes I feel comfortable in.
  • I used the Buteyko breathing method to help me build my breathing running stamina.
  • I worked my legs in the gym using weights, and also attended classes, to strengthen the muscles.
  • I used EFT for any block in my path.

I hope this helps motivate you or yours for achieving any sports goal you want. I´ll keep you posted on my progress.

When you have a chronic physical condition, anything that either emotionally or physically has a negative impact on you can make the condition worse. EFT is one way of throwing away the emotional rubbish collecting in your system. In the same way that we dispose of our household rubbish regularly for home cleanliness and hygiene, I use EFT to dispose of negative emotions for my optimal physical health. My health was not always as good as this. Please go back to around 2005 on this blog to get to the worst postings, if you are looking for how to tap for those really bad days of health.

Week 5 of Runners World Training and I Have To Go On The Road

I am petrified. I did a practice run yesterday and it was hard. I am so used to the gym, with timers and absolute control. This is the wild world. So I tapped on it. And I figured out how to use a stopwatch tomorrow to comfort me like in the gym. I am still terrified – afraid of failure.

Setup

¨Fear of failure, fear the COPD will win, I DEEPLY LOVE AND ACCEPT MYSELF¨

Reminder

¨Fear of failure, fear the COPD will win¨

It went from a 7 to a 0.4. I think I can´t get it any lower, as there is a real fear that I might not make it. But as I tapped, I was getting images of me running past certain landmarks, and then continuing running. Actually, now it´s a 0.275, and I feel so good.

Tomorrow morning, I get up and go running. My clothes and everything are ready. I am ready. I will report back after my run!

Week 5 of Runners World Running Training

Suzanne:  5

COPD:  0

This week started today, and I was terrified that this week is the week the COPD wins. I was so afraid that I could not concentrate on anything and had to tap almost continually all day, till I got the guts to go to the gym and find out. At the gym, I caught the Yoga class, and it was very relaxing. Hard, but relaxing. And of course, I tapped at every opportunity there too. After the class, I went up to the treadmill, but decided to build my lungs up properly first. I went onto the elliptical trainer and tapped/rubbed my finger points against the handlebars while doing my Buteyko exercises for lung stamina. I kept going till I could walk the elliptical trainer for just over 10 seconds holding my breath, and then graduated to the treadmill.

On the treadmill, I was calm but still afraid and I tapped while I walked for about a minute, then I really wanted to run, so I started. I am on Week 5 of the Runners World training, and so I had to run 8 minutes straight. I kept tapping:

¨Even though Iḿ terrified, I deeply love and accept myself¨

¨Even though Iḿ so afraid the COPD will win this time, I deeply love and accept myself¨

It was helping, but I needed more, so I shouted in my mind the ¨I DEEPLY and COMPLETELY LOVE and ACCEPT MYSELF¨ and then there was no stopping me. I made myself stop at 8 minutes, rested 2 minutes, then  started again. I finished the next 8 minutes, and there was a smelly-cheap-perfume-spray person just next to me. Now, that obstruction in my left lung means that if anything irritates my lung, it can swell and the obstruction would stop me in my tracks. So I tapped for ¨poison person¨ and then simply changed to another treadmill. I kept going till I did my set of 3 8-minute runs. Then I allowed myself to break into a sprint. It lasted about 12 seconds but it was wonderful.

So….
