Love it or hate it, I guess I am a runner…

The story of me and running, its a never ending cycle! I keep coming back to it, but I still don’t know if I like it! I definitely don’t hate it… OK I almost certainly don’t hate it…but I also don’t love it… I know this appears to be an extremely indecisive post so far,…… Continue reading Love it or hate it, I guess I am a runner…

Day 271: I made all the way around!

In January 2013 I started the c25k for the first time, My distance was 1.81 miles, which is about 2.9km which is not too shabby for a first go ever, but then you have to bear in mind that it was mostly walking, something like 1 min run and 1.5 min walk with 5 mins…… Continue reading Day 271: I made all the way around!

And it was!!! 😀 look at that!! 4.45km! in 34 mins! average pace was 7.42 min/km… average pace!…that includes the walk intervals!! and there were walk intervals…I planned them in on purpose, I am just not good enough (or my brain is not in the right place) for continuous running.

Day 83(part 1): turns out I can run faster than can walk

Good Morning 🙂 Yesterday, during my normal morning edging into lunchtime dilemma, I was trying to decide whether to go for a run or not. I was scheduled to run, but I ran Tuesday and Wednesday and had quite tight feeling calves and hamstrings. I was in two minds and they were arguing. On the…… Continue reading Day 83(part 1): turns out I can run faster than can walk

Good afternoon 🙂 woohoo 🙂 I had a successful return to running today 🙂 I decided to move on to week 6 day 1 instead of re attempting the 20 min run.

Good afternoon 🙂 Today I nearly ran for longer than I have ever run before…ever! Nearly…but not quite. I really wanted to be able to write this blog post and say “I did it” but I can’t.

Challenge Number 2 (the one that already scares me)

Good morning 🙂 I have mentioned previously that I am going to supplement the main challenge with some smaller challenges to keep me going. Yesterday (on something of a whim), I decided on the second of these “smaller” challenges.  I feel perfectly justified in using sarcastic quotes around smaller in this context because to me…… Continue reading Challenge Number 2 (the one that already scares me)
