Notes as I become a runner... again!

1. I don't enjoy the run, but the feeling afterwards is amazing!

2. I can't find a good route when I live now which puts me off.

3. My chest (I have had disease in my lungs) has been bad (week7) and I'm really really struggling 😞

4. I've got my number for a New Year's Eve race!! Only 5k but last time I did it 4yrs ago I did 34.5 mins so I have a time to beat! (At the moment I'm looking at more like 50mins!!)

5. I WILL keep going. 😁

  • Hello, welcome back ☺

    There are running routes everywhere just waiting to be run ☺ Have a darned good look 😊

    If you have a race booked then hopefully that will be sufficient motivation to keep going

    Slow but sure does the job. Good luck 😊

  • Yep I'm hoping it's all I need to push me. Plus the more I do the more I can eat!!! 😜

  • I so agree with 1😊but getting better at enjoying itπŸ˜€keep going you will get there but don't be so harsh on yourself if you finish your race which you will that's a great achievement & I'm sure your times will be great. Good luck 😊

  • Well done you for getting this far when you've been poorly , you've got great determination! Best of luck with your race!

  • Welcome back:)

  • Welcome back. I love the positive finish to your post. That's the attitude! Good luck with the training!

  • Good food only though!, You are what to eat. Nag nag πŸ˜ƒ

  • yeah but 'live to eat' or 'eat to live'...

    I eat to eat ha ha haaaaaaa

  • I am a real foodie! No-one likes food more than me, but I like my food healthy. It can be done. I grow lots of stuff so it's not that difficult to whip up something lush. I don't do takeaways any more. Those days are long gone, along with the booze. I wasn't a runner back then though
