For run 3 of the week, I even took my dog for company and he enjoyed going on a faster leg stretch than usual. Extra happiness all round, so fingers crossed for week three……..
In 2011 my friend was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Whilst sitting round hers one day I said I would do the 5k Race for Life on the understanding she fought the disease and was at the finish with pink champagne.
Even though i was freezing cold, tired, hungry and by body hurt lol i felt truly amazing, i thought this is why someone wants to run 13 miles for fun , because it makes you feel fantastic after. I have decided this week i plan to work on my weight training to strengthen up my legs.
Then a friend mentioned Strava. Oh heck, now there were segments to run and PBs to get and my natural competitiveness reared its head. I was now beginning to tell family, friends and colleagues about my running and the plan for the Great South Run.
I have spent my whole life telling anyone who will listen that I am not a runner, and I have always hated running. Yet, as a 50+ year old, I have this nagging urge to be able to run
