It was suggested that I start a blog, as I'm feeling a little lonely out there pounding the pine needles and gravel on my own - I don't even have the dulcet tones of Laura in my ears to spur me on (I started on a different plan and it's a bit late now for me to have a young whippersnapper telling me what to do)
A wee word or five about me. I live in a very small village, quit smoking at Easter this year, and I've been a keen power walker for a few years (sub 13min miles) and thought it was about time a took both feet off the ground as a new focus for staying off smoking. This is my 4th attempt at becoming a runner - well we're all entitled to a couple of false starts aren't we? Oh no - didn't they change that rule last year?. Och well I just had a 'run' of bad luck, getting 2 injuries and an unplanned trip to the US put a large spanner in the works of the stay off the rollups campaign which tested me to the limits but I am still smoke free
Tomorrow morning I will be running Week 6 and the 25 minutes continuous run, and I'm hoping that I won't look like i'm playing hopscotch with puddles as I did on Monday for 2 x 10 minute runs with 1 minute walk - see?? Laura wouldn't have been happy with that! lol
I'm enjoying this now, maybe I'll keep 'blogging'. I'm a bit of a technophobe: let me play my banjo instead of figuring out how to work my new mp3 player although I do like listening to music while I'm power walking.
Will update maybe tomorrow if I'm still alive and dried out
