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
