…I nipped out for a 5K on Sunday. Just up Bridge Valley Road and around a small chunk of the Downs, and back to Clifton Village for lunch. Luckily I found a gap in the rain!
I’ll try to get out again tomorrow or Friday; looking at the weather forecast, Friday might be the better bet…
I’ve been feeling fairly guilty recently. Trying to learn iPhone programming from home has been pretty slow-going. And I’ve been letting a few other things slip — from arranging viewings of potential new houses to emailing my friend Carmen about popping around for paella. And I’ve not been jogging much.
Then I got a cold. That really didn’t help.
So, today I went out for my first jog in ages, with the latest episode of Back to Work in my headphones. And it reminded me of one of the best reasons to be out jogging — there’s pretty much no way of feeling guilt while I’m out for a jog.
Unless I’ve missed some important appointment, there’s nothing I could be doing that’s better for me, all round, than being out in the sun and fresh air (or, let’s face it, wind and rain) getting some exercise.
So, yeah. Jogging. Whether it’s enjoyable at the time or not (and this still varies, for me), at least it’s always good for my conscience.
