This evening I completed my graduation run and I have to admit to feeling proud of myself. I am 64, and hadn't run or taken any proper exercise for decades until May this year when I was given running gear as a birthday present by my kids, Best present ever! Up until today, towards the end of the run I found myself desperately wanting Sarah Millican to say "that's it, you can slow down for your five minute warm down walk" or words to that effect, but today I got to the end of the 30 mins and just kept on running for another five minutes! What a great moment to get an unexpected energy burst.
Sorry if this sounds like boasting, but that's not what it is, I'm just chuffed bits and want to share my enthusiasm to encourage others. Yahoo!
