I suddenly had a dash of blinding inspiration yesterday and thought 'I'd like to be able to run a bit'. I used to hate running at school because it just seemed to be a way of the PE teachers getting rid of us for a whole lesson and always figured I couldn't do it.
So, anyway, before I could chicken out I bought a new shock absorber level 4 bra and some actual running shoes (not very expensive but proper running shoes nonetheless) and some training pants and a wickaway top and I just ordered the 'running for beginners' book and, heaven help me, I'm going to start running.
I just want to be able to do a reasonable run for 30 minutes (building
up to it of course) so I don't think it's out of my league but I
certainly feel a bit WAAAAAAAAAAH!
My husband is being very supportive but I'm not sure I will be able to stick at it. I'm hoping that some lovely people will be able to encourage me a bit and give me tips and I might be able to manage a 30 minute run by the summer ( I really want to run along the seafront in the summer).
Now, tell me, am I a mentalist?
