Anyone who’s read this blog for a while will probably be aware that I used to run regularly – I was a member of Bellahouston Road Runners, and regularly entered 10k’s, half-marathons, and did 1 marathon – before somehow falling out of the habit. I’ve tried to keep going by myself, but find it hard to motivate or push myself, so just kept doing the same route in the same time, and wasn’t improving at all but just ticking over.
Today s work colleague wanted to get back into running after a long lay-off, so at lunchtime, we headed out for a loop of about 5k.
There was a bit of walk/run/walk/run involved, but you know, it didn’t matter. We were out, and we were running, and it’s better to start getting back into it like this, than to try and burst a gut, and get disillusioned all over again.
Hopefully this is going to continue, but I’m happy at the moment to take it slow and see how it goes.
