No messing around for me today!! 🙌🏽! Why? 🤔 I was on the forum yesterday and saw some posts that new beginners and those about to begin, sharing their apprehensions about being able to run. Some reflecting on their age, some their size and if with a niggling ailment, running was for them. All valid concerns. And I know they’re valid, because I had my own story! Never run and avoided it like it was the plague, so was it madness to think that I could run now, at almost 49?!🙄🤪
But, I told one fantastic lady a bit about my story. I decided to go out there and not care about how I looked in my leggings and T-shirt shuffling along, I was just going to have fun doing something just for me. That was like a light bulb moment too! Because it felt so good just saying it! 😍😍
That’s it!💡..... in a nutshell, I’m going out there for me and I’ll do my very best! If it’s not as long or fast as everyone else, that’s so cool 😎 , brilliant even 🤩......it’s so great to see what amazing things we all have the privilege of doing. It shows me what’s possible and gives you options. What a great running community we have! 🤗
My current programme’s 2k has been completed in the old school way ✅ ! I was channeling the good OldFloss guidance “snail 🐌...slow...slow...slow!” and I did 2.6k in the end, just 🐌🐌🐌🐌... back to the door. It was great! I also remembered that slow helps to build up a lot of stamina (finally 🙄).
I’ve enjoyed my time back in old school mode! (Thank goodness the uniforms changed a little though 😂)! Winter, I’m building up some running muscle for you!.....Let’s go! 😁
Happy running Runners! ❤️
