Two by Two

July 31st, 2009 1 comment

Just nipped out and did run number two of week number two. The same run as last time, only vastly easier on a non-full stomach! Luckily I didn’t have hammering rain to put me off this evening, so getting out there was easy. It was raining a little bit (hey, Bristol’s Harbour Festival starts today, […]

Scratch That, Reverse It!”

I changed my mind! Some encouragement from the LiveJournal C25K community came at exactly the right time. I still had some energy, it had stopped raining, there was at least half an hour of daylight left… So I went. And I’m just back from my first run of Week 2. Huzzah! It wasn’t easy, though. […]

Rain Interrupted Play

I’m meant to be doing my fourth run this evening. But the rain outside is way beyond Sunday’s drizzle, and into the realms of Heavy Weather. I need some wet weather running gear (I’m woefully under-prepared for rain, clothes-wise.) I shall if I can buy some this week, even if it’s just some jogging bottoms […]

I was aching yesterday from my first run. And I was aching today from my first run, too. It wasn’t terrible — I certainly had worse in my karate days, as kicking at head height definitely stretches the muscles more than running. Plus you tend to get hit, too 🙂 But I was a little […]

First Run Done!

July 22nd, 2009 2 comments

That’s the first run under my belt, then! I got home from work to find the cheap bum bag (“fanny pack”, for you Leftpondians) that I’d ordered waiting on my doormat, which was handy. I hadn’t realised how difficult it is to buy running shorts with pockets, and I don’t like the idea of the […]

Starting from Scratch

July 22nd, 2009 Comments off

Today, I start running. Obviously, I’ve run in the past. At some point. But this will be the first time since school that I’ve run for the sake of running, rather than running for a bus, or running as part of some other exercise. The closest I’ve come in recent years would be the jogging […]
