Fitness: To Run or Not to Run?

You may recall last week I blogged about how my mother and I took a little stroll around Himley and Baggeridge. You may also remember that we made a pact. Mumma was going to complete three circuits of her walking route around her local park and I was going to attempt my 5k jogging route. Did we do it?

Ha, Ha, Ha No.

I can’t vouch for my mother, but if you were to ask me why I didn’t complete my side of the bargain I could come up with a whole host of reasons excuses…

I mean there just wasn’t time.
LIE: I could have found time.

The weather was awful.
LIE: The weather was rubbish sometimes, at other times it was fine.

My running trousers are annoying me as I keep having to pull them up.
EXCUSE: I’ve put up with it before, one more run in them wouldn’t have hurt.

I hadn’t drunk enough liquids during the day, I didn’t want to dehydrate.
EXCUSE: So drink more!

What makes it worse is that I haven’t done any other exercise either. Well, not unless you count blitzing the housework on Monday evening, or trudging around a trade show on Tuesday, or maybe shlepping around Merry Hill for most of Saturday, after all…

The good news is that as part of that shopping trip I treated myself to some Adidas running leggings. So that’s one excuse out of the window.

Question is, will I get my jog on by this time next week? Place your bets now you fabulous lot.
