I know, I’ve been a terrible blogger lately. I promise some decent content soon.
In the meantime, I’d like to discuss running.
Not running away from problems, not my pair of stockings running (although that did happen this week!) and not running out of ideas for blog posts. Just the usual, standard running.
Now, as I have mentioned before, I am not by any stretch of the imagination a running kind of gal.
I love my konga classes, can’t get enough of yoga, could ride my bike everyday and have the best time on a netball court. Running, however, has never been my forte. I can walk (at a brisk pace of course) forever, give me some decent tunes or a good podcast* and I’ll be off.
The issue that is occurring now though, is that this isn’t enough anymore. I feel the need to run, like my body kind of wants to get going, and it does sometimes, but I’ll run for a kilometre or so and give up.
THEREFORE. I have decided to sign up for a fun run to give myself some motivation. I believe that I can do it, I just need to get over these demons in my head, and I think a deadline would be a good way to challenge this.
To concrete this decision, I have conned my friend Anh into running with me, and … ahh, written a blog about it.
I thought a fun run would be a good place to start, so why not pick the funnest run of them all?
And thus, the training begins. Wish me luck!
*Podcasts are taking over my life right now. I got hooked on Serial, then devoured Criminal. My favourites at the moment are Gilmore Guys, This American Life and Mamamia Out Loud.
If anyone has any recommendations, I am all ears!
