Just wanted to say i LOVE this forum, its been a great influence on me and i'm sure i wouldn't have stuck to c25k without it! There are great characters here, inspirational posters, sensible advice & people seem to genuinely care how each other are doing, and i for one would be a much less positive person without it.
* i've just written a load of personal stuff which i've just deleted,(don't want you lot to have to put up with my rants and it made me sad!) but the gist of it is i don't know entirely where my life is going precisely.............! My jobs rubbish at the mo, money is a big issue and i just feel like i have so much to do and not enough time!! The same for everyone tho i guess! A bit swamped with negativity at times! .....to the outside world i'm doing ok, but inside thats not always so!
BUT.......... this is the year for change i hope, i'm trying to really stick to things and make a go of my running( i started in January2014) , its a great focus for me and i've surprised myself with how its ok going! did over 8km on Saturday, a big milestone and put a smile on my face! I for one enjoy the challenge of achieving a PB( and thats mine for my size, shape and no two people are the same!) but i think the important thing to realise is that we're all in it together on here, no matter if we can just run to the end of the street, whatever we do is improving our health, wellbeing and if we are here making virtual friends, so much the better! I've never used a forum before but really enjoy logging in when i can and seeing how everyones doing.
So thats it really!
I'm off now to do positive things! just had a jolly walk with my dog, he was frolicking in the sunshine and i was pondering and wondering what to do with my day! Its now decided: gardening, baking, lunch outside in the sun. Off to visit my mum at 3pm in her Nursing home hopefully laden with buns, some of the sweet old people that live there make me realise life must be grabbed with both hands before its too late, some are really frail and some are in their own little world where they can't be reached its an eye opener for sure. Mum was fully mobile 4 yrs ago and we enjoyed many a great dog walk, but that can't happen now. So be grateful for health and try to stay happy (i will include that to myself pointedly!!)
And then i might even go on a run!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy running everyone sorry if this goes on a bit, you're kind of my therapy sometimes!!
