Hurrah the sun is shining, the birds may well be singing and spring has finally sprung.
All this is a sharp contrast to yesterday evening when I made the decision to jog/walk or jawlk home!
Keen to try out my new running trainers, I decided last night I would walk the 4.9 miles back to my little flat. I set off and it started to rain. Halfway home, it was really raining so I decided to speed things up a bit and jog. Now, as I am only in week 4 of my walk-to-run program, I had no idea how I would fare, but I did alreet, running for 15 minutes and speeding up my journey considerably!
My goal now is to run the whole way home, but maybe I'll leave that until week 8 or something!
Having decent trainers that match my running style has really made a difference though. For starters my feet didn't hurt, and it's much easier to keep running when your feet don't hurt. Secondly, because I know they fit me, I worry less about getting nasty things like bunions – sore feet for life in exchange for fitness doesn’t seem like a good deal to me.
Ooh, and while we're on the subject of trainers, yesterday I won a pair of MBTs. For those of you that don't know, these are trainers with funny rounded soles and they are meant to improve your posture and give you a workout as you walk. More importantly, they cost a fortune!
So imagine my delight when I learnt I would soon have a pair for absolutely free.
Between them and the running, I will have my double-figure figure under control in no time at all.
Or at the very least, I'll break even in relation to my chocolate addiction!
