It might not seem like much to anybody else, but have decided this is the year to do other sports, so have bought bike and taken up running!
I have just come back from first run in public (something i really didn't want to do). Managed fairly well although think a marathon is a long way off!
Not only did i run in public i ran in front of strangers (normally very quiet field, today however everyones favourite place!) and then ran home through the village. I did it in small chunks of running/walking as per plan.
I;m so proud of myself and wanted to share with you guys!
Well done you I run, well am just getting back into it after a bit of a break and the big thing for me was running in front of people. Where we live is very hilly, so I was scared people would laugh at me trying to haul my fat ass up the hills. They didn't, I kept it up and I lost loads of weight as a result, it is surprising how quickly you can build up your distance/speed. Am just starting again after a bit of a break. Good for you!
Got a back injury at the mo, that has sadly squashed my idea of training for the race for life in a couple of weeks, but I'll start running as soon as I can without feeling like my pelvis is going to fall apart !!
