Just do it!

After a weekend of too much drinking, eating and not much sleeping, I was trying to justify a lie down instead of W9R1. 'I can go again; I can miss tonight etc'.

I've five weeks until the Liverpool 5k, so I told myself to get my trainers on and get out, even if I couldn't manage the full 30 minutes - something is always better than nothing!

Guess what? I ran further than last week, and maybe a tiny bit faster (although not that you'd notice). I even ran a few minutes more and feel fantastic!

So next time I'm thinking I can't be bothered, I'm just going to put my stuff on and go out and put one foot in front of the other and see where I end up. I can't believe how far I've come in nine weeks; if I can do this anyone can

  • Well done for turning out and running! I have found that the runs I am least looking forward to are often the best runs......either really comfortable and enjoyable, or a good time, or i manage to run longer than previously. Good luck with the 5k!

  • Well done !

    Yep sometimes weve got to give ourselves a good talking to and get out there and that certainly paid off for you !

    Betcha so glad you went arent you ? :-) xxx

  • Well done on talking yourself into it!

  • You go for it!

    That is totally the spirit... so nearly there! :)

  • Often I have to shout at myself to get out the flaming door! It's always worth it so well done!!
