Living and running in the wild wild (South) West

November 25, 2012

For anyone who lives in the UK and has seen a weather forecast it wont be a big surprise that this week has been a bit of an exercise washout.  Heavy rain and high winds are conspiring against me and are disrupting my Couch25k attempts a bit.

I’ve completed week 2 run 2, which was a little more challenging than intended.  Running in a breeze is one thing, worrying that you might be blown off the pavement is another.  In future I’ll keep a better eye on the weather or retreat to the gym if things are looking dodgy.

What has surprised me is how hard it is to run for 90 seconds!  Week 1 was OK, 60 seconds actually didn’t seem like that long.  All of a sudden that extra 30 seconds is enough to leave me gasping and I feel like a total wimp.  Despite this I have noticed a knock on effect in my other exercise as both the rowing and the Body Jam are easier and I can push myself harder.

Having skipped doing anything today I’m not feeling very virtuous, so I promise I will get back on the waggon tomorrow.  Come rain or shine I will get off my (broken) bottom and do something.

This isn't really anything for people to get excited about, it is more about my own personal journey and so I can see what I am doing.
