I'm grateful for my legs but I don't think they like me *sad face*

Earlier today I was reading a blog which had a comment on it (due to my goldfish like qualities I have no idea whose blog & comment so apologies) in which someone stated we should be grateful for the legs we have, or some comment of similar ilk (I know, I know I'm a real details person!!) and it got me thinking .....

Sometimes I really want to run and other times I want to curl up in front of my roaring log fire and never move again but that comment really made me appreciate the fact I have the choice. Some people, whether due to injury, disability or other reasons can't get up & out there no matter how much they want to so I will always try to be remember to be grateful for my legs.

In an act of gratitude I decided to 'treat' my legs to the Speed podcast this evening covering over 3k which I thought was pretty good going. I finding the speed podcast quite easy & I'm not sure why; I think it may be psychological in that it is shorter than 30 minutes so I feel like I can really give it some welly. Easy as it may be my muscles have already started to ache - extra exercise this week plus a podcast means sore legs tomorrow that definitely won't appreciate their 'treat'.

I'm struggling to fit running in lately but I still want to get out there so I suppose the mind is willing even if the clock keeps running out of time. With a combination of eating well & exercise, not just running, I've lost 12lbs since 05/08/12 which I am really happy with. My BMI is almost into the healthy range.

I really am going to join running club tomorrow - no more excuses - so that's another bit of exercise to add to my week. Wish me luck ....

Happy jogging folks :)

  • You've just reminded me, I only came on the computer this evening to download the new podcasts, I was going to have a go at 'speed' tomorrow.

  • Did you download speed? How did it go?

    And congrats on your weight loss too :D

  • The problem is that when I get up to 165 beats per minute my stride gets longer as well and I've not got the breath to shout 'Run like the wind Bullseye!'

    Trying to be serious, the fast runs were hard work and the last one almost didn't make it, but I did and will have another go, and another etc until it's easy.

    Getting fitter with every stride.

  • Ah yes, what happened to your visit to the running club last week???? I knew I was due an update on something! ;-)

  • I would have updated you last week except I didn't go *sighs*, sometimes living just gets in the way of having a life!! But I went tonight & loved it :D :D
