Oh, I've managed to restrain myself for over 24 hours, but I've got to tell you. I ran 3.66 miles yesterday, without walking. In 40 minutes and 52 seconds. I am just a tad chuffed with myself. Doesn't make my legs sore, but my word, makes my arm hurt! I have found some natural anti-inflammatories, so I'm hoping that will help, along with paracetamol if necessary.

3.66 miles! In 40 minutes and 52 seconds!!

Have to see if I can do it again sometime...

Go you!

(Feeling tired now, you run for me OK?!)

I never intended to get 'into' running, (or become a running bore!) but it is definitely catchy. In my sane moments, I know it's complete maddness, I daren't tell my mum, I can hear the prune face from here! But then I find myself feeling anxious and depressed at a weekend, when I don't run and David pointed out I'm missing my run. Help!

Yeah, I'll 'run' for you, but I can't guarantee to share the benefits! (Not that I'm quite sure what they are yet...)

This is brilliant - really good going. You seem to be going further and faster at quite a rate. I wonder whether you'll decide to run the marathon?

I'm finding myself more competitive than I wanted to be, but I don't want to race. I set myself little goals, (the first was 1.5 miles, the second 2, the third a full 2.5 mile circuit, then the 3.66 mile circuit...) but I'm running out of challenges without getting into serious 5K and 10K races, which I don't want.

No, really, I don't.

I just want to have the cardiovascular fitness for this walk.

But I'm scared I won't be able to stop...


Ruth said...

Tee hee.

My prediction:
_YOU_ are going to run the marathon!

Louise said...


Please, don't make me.

I know of people that have set that very challenge for themselves for a specific reason, like, their 40th birthday...


Hey, now here's an idea.


Now who's laughing!
