I started with gym training in late 2005, joined runs/races on the early part of 2006 and got into serious running and mtbiking on the latter part of 2007. For some girls these activities will be a no-no because of their fear of getting bigger thighs and legs.
But hey, my thighs and legs were even bigger when I was a 20+ pounds overweight woman having a sedentary lifestyle.
Why, do you say, am I blogging about it? Because my dear friends, I have heard in such different instances and just earlier today have accidentally eavesdropped in a conversation while i was riding the elevator some girls’ fear of developing bigger thighs and/or legs from running and or gym training.
This is a MYTH. Don’t let this myth prevent you from experiencing what the outdoor has to offer you and what good benefits exercising/running/biking will bring to you.
Sayang naman. For me, it was the other way around pa nga. I like my thighs and legs more now. And what’s best, my “almost-flat-b*tt” from the past have now developed into something more acceptable. Ei, yep! I have a ”shapier” behind! Makes me appreciate wearing pants/jeans more than ever.
Now, do I hear girls planning on hitting the roads to either run or bike? Don’t just take my word for it. Try it, see for yourself, enjoy and reap all the benefits these outdoor activities has in-store for you. Go girls!
