Because of the current advice I avoided the gym this morning and attempted my first ever outdoor jog (Wk7Run2) around my local reservoir which is 5 minutes walk from my house. I was dreading the thought of being more visible and how much harder it would be physically, but getting there early morning I only passed one walker and managed the full 25 minutes! I actually enjoyed the change of scenery and fresh air and was really proud of myself for doing something I would never have done.
I’m now feeling deflated however because I let slip this morning’s triumph to my parents which led to a telling off about going anywhere other than main roads by myself. (I’m 35). Obviously I appreciate the point they are making but I’m essentially being told I can’t enjoy any of these places by myself ever! Which is very frustrating!
Is this familiar to anyone? Do other ladies out there enjoy the outdoors on their own?
