The past few years of good eating have contributed to my spare tire. Weighing about 14.5ST isn’t exactly a good milestone for me. I have decided to start running again to shift the weight. Why now you ask? At freezing night temperatures?
Well actually, running in December, at night, through the dead quiet streets isn’t as bad as it first seems. I was dreading the idea at first, but finishing my first lap after dragging myself out of bed at1 a.m. mad me feel accomplished, even though it’s my first one.
It’s nice and cold, and keeps you cool after a while. Secondly, setting a goal as a new year resolution is bound to be broken, especially if you go around telling people before actually do it.
Many moons ago, I used to run every other day with 30mins of skipping inbetween. The ritual worked for a few years and worked really well (with the self determination) but I kinda started to do it less and less until it stopped entirely.
I’m not a fanatic. I don’t buy into the whole lycra plus shoes plus heartrate monitor crap. I run for a personal goal, not to prove anything to anyone. Although I’ve decided the only good use for lycra is to stop chafe.
