Adopted the 'just do it' mantra to finally get started. no more excuses like...i havent downloaded all the weeks runs or ......oh I have not syncd my ipod yet. Got back from a hedonistic day out, got the garden chair out and thought, No! this wont do. just put your trainers on and do it. Took the advice given on my question which really motivated me...and off i went. Planned my route......down to the river.... Hurdle No. 1. Bridge closed...Damn, had to go back the way I came......Hurdle No. 2. Bumped into chatty neighbour who wanted to chat....panicked as I couldn't stop the Ipod!!!!.....Anyway finally did it. Felt really pleased with myself. BB (my border collie) was great company and loved joining in the game of run, stop, run stop.....bring on Sunday for W1R2.
