Here’s the thing….
I hate running. Ok, I don’t HATE running, I’m rubbish at running. I didn’t used to when I was in the Royal Navy and was super fit, but that was 11 years ago when I left.
Since then, I got a desk job and got mega unfit.
This weekend was the wedding of a Navy friend of mine and I was sat on the rowdy Sailors table which was brill! But it took me back to them days where I thought nothing of a 3-4 mile run around the dockyard. To run that distance now seems like a dream. But dreams have to start somewhere right?
To top it off, my friends new lovely wife, Kim has completed the London Marathon after only 4-5 months training and didn’t even own a pair of trainers before she met her new husband. This inspired me. Also the fact that on my table t the wedding was this great couple who were planning on an hours run’ the morning after the wedding reception! And they did it too!!! This was inspiring also. I have to do something to turn my fitness and confidence around when it comes to running. They say the only way to get better at running is to run!
It’s on my Bucket List to complete a challenge of going out for a jog every day for a month starting on April 1st- nope, not an Aprils fool!
What do you think? Will I complete it? Let me know your comments below.
I will blog every day after my jog to keep you updated….
Right… Need a decent pair of trainers!!!
