Just thought I'd tell you all about my new experience with running. I'm currently on week 3 and really loving it!
But I got in from work last night quite late and really didn't like the idea of jogging around my town, in the dark, on a Friday night (with all the 'youth' hanging around! - gosh I sound old!)
So my husband suggested he cycled with me. Now initially I was dead against the idea as I like 'me' time - alone on the open road, just me and my thoughts (oh and Laura too!) but he suggested that he wouldn't be with me, just cycling behind me - keeping an eye on me.
So off we went, me with my (bike shaped) shadow behind me. To start with, I kept looking behind me to check he was there but soon decided to keep my eyes on the road!
Overall it was a really successful run as I felt safe, and I think I pushed myself a little harder, with him checking up on me At one point he said he nearly got lost as I was jogging at such a fast pace!!
I just wondered whether most people jog on their own or if they are lucky enough to have a running 'buddie' ? I really envy people who go jogging with their dogs.
