sencond run of week 3, and it felt good. :)

a little while ago someone told me to suck a polo whilst running- (cause i kept getting a really dry mouth) and it totally works. so that helps me alot. my recovery is getting a lot better too. but i have to be honest i still havent been bitten by the running bug yet- i was kinda hopeing i would just fall in love with running and wanting to go for the runs would come naturally, but it hasnt yet. is anyone else feeling the same way?? once i start running im fine its just getting motivated to go to the running track. xx

Maybe the answer is in your last sentence? Where do you run? I'm lucky to have some disused railway/cycle paths near me as well as a small park. using the same route and the same 400m of track may dull your motivation.


I'm 7 months into it and haven't learned to "love" it yet. I do find I love the challenges and the sense of achievement I feel after a run though. Very well done and wishing you a Fab next run! Gayle


fair point walney, but im not a confident runner yet. once i know i can run 10-20 mins straight then i wont mind running round my local park/village. but right now, the running track is always empty so no-one can see me. lol

but thanks for your coments xx


I understand your concerns my first few weeks running were all at night wearing a hat. I even had a moustache to hide behind through the whole of november!


i dont think its the boring-ness of the track that doesnt motivate me, i just dont have much self condidence so i feel out of my comfort zone when running therefore its always hard for me to get motivated :/

did you have a moustache for movember or just personal choice??

my brother did movember, i had to pay him a £ every time i insulted him or told a moustache joke!! lol it became a small fortune but it was worth it hehehe x
