Hi all I haven't visited the forum for a couple of weeks mainly because this is such a wonderfully positive place and I didn't want to bring my negativity to you all! The "outlaws" have been staying with us 😱😱 never an easy experience for me😞
I have continued my running, it's been my saving grace in many ways but it has been different. Since finishing C25K I have been steadily improving speed and distance but with my descending gloom I felt my legs return to lead and my body generally flag. The runs have been harder and slower. Since starting running my mood has improved immeasurably along with my fitness and I have realised this week that it isn't just the running driving the mood, my negativity has influenced my running too. I have still felt way better by the end of each run, it just hasn't lasted as long! So I just wanted to say to anyone who's feeling a bit low and like staying on the couch - get out there it definitely helps, the feel good factor may not last as long and the run may not be as good but it really is worth it.
In the spirit of updating you all but without too much drivel ! Fazzical and I have finally had our first running date - his legs are too long and he runs too fast 😁😁 he needs to remember I will be in charge for the blindfold run😀😀
Also my last post was about jogging v running and OldWheezer mentioned she sometimes enjoyed a little jogette, impromptu run. I just wanted to say I tried that yesterday and I am definitely NOT built for jogetting! If I ever doubted whether a good sports bra makes a difference - I don't now 😳😳
Am going to catch up with what you've all been up to now. I have my smiley faces at the ready 😀😎
