Went to my Nana's this weekend and had to fight the corner of the joggers and runners out there!
My nan made a glib comment about walking faster than some joggers she sees, meaning, apparently, that they're "not even trying", they're "hardly breaking into a sweat" and that her walk is harder and more exercise/fitness-enhancing than running!
I struggled to keep my cool, I'll tell you! I personally am really struggling with C25K, and have lost my motivation a bit having attempted the 25min run 5 times now and been successful on two occasions, but I'm sticking with going out, because I know it's great for me!
I jog/run far slower than I walk, covering about the same distance whether I run or walk for the amount of time, but I know that the running is making all the difference!
As I said, at least we're doing some exercise, and it's tough, and it hurts and it's great for us! I'd expected a bit more support from her, but people always surprise us!
At least I know I've got the support and inspiration on here, for which I am truly grateful!
Good on everyone who is actually going out there and doing something! Inspire a generation, and maybe it'll start working throughout all generations!
