Running is like love; once you’ve experienced it, you understand forever what a blissful thing it
can be… ::from Runner’s World::
Just do it! Nike said it, i'm doing it!
As some of you may know from my previous post, I have taken up the Shape 10km challenge. At this point in time, I can't even THINK that far, never mind actually move at once over that distance! Week one went pretty well with easy walk / run intervals. This week is a bit more tough, coz the running part is more >> obviously! lol.
So I've joined a running club as BoldlyBenny suggested - thanks! :) Starting tonight - once a week, and also mixes up my training a bit. I've also taken MudIsland Mike's suggestion of running outside, and not on the treadmill, and this has worked well - as he said - great scenery and fresh air plus I don't look like I'm trying out an 80's-Michael-Jackson-move - like I feel when I'm on the treadmill at gym! Seriously, the treadmill does scare me when I start moving at more of jog than a walk and the transition... I'm always scared I'm going to do a Michael-Jackson move and moon walk off and land on my chin! Ok, no babies invovled, but you get the picture!
My fitness has increased, I'm down a pants size... and I'm feeling fantastic!
Shape is really awesome - I got my weekly mail on Friday with this weeks training schedule, a training log book and some training tips.
If nemo had legs, he'd be singing, just keep running just keep running >> that's what I have to tell myself when I feel like stopping!
Gotta run (lol... lame) cheers x
