[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
Woohoo, that weight's going in the right direction.
Lately I've been visited by my old friend, laziness. I'd planned to do a 10 km run on Friday - my long run for the week. Well on Friday I decided to reschedule it for Saturday. Saturday I rescheduled for Sunday. Yesterday I sat around thinking up excuses for not doing it. I didn't want to run, I wanted to curl up in front of the heater with my knitting and my coffee. It's so hard to get motivated when the weather's so cold.
In the end, I put on my running gear. It's so much harder to NOT go running when you are dressed for it. Still took a lot to get me out the door but I decided I do a 5 km run around the block and then keep going. my usual around the block run and keep going. I worked out the time I needed to run based on my pace and ran for that time.
I'd like to say that running somewhere new and unexplored revitalised my running but that would be lies. When I leave my house and run my usual run, the streets are all bitumen. I didn't realise that heading north, they are all concrete. Concrete is much harder on the legs and knees than bitumen. Curse you, City of Darebin and your need to concrete!
When I got home, I tracked it on MapMyRun (my new fave toy) and it ended up being over 11 km - go me.
Well done for getting out there. Did you take the time to indulge yourself in feelings of self-righteousness?
Great going on the 11km run :)
Well done on the run and damn that interviewer to hell and back. Karma will come back to bite him on the arse don't you worry about that!
Awesome ... 11 kms ! You are a machine.
I am mainly a concrete runner too, I think I need to find something softer for some of my runs, but the only option locally is running around and around a footy oval which doesn't sound too great - but may need to to save the knees and shins.
Congrats on making it to 11km, so much for your original 10km goal - right? Great job.
Yay with your run!!
You would love Vancouver Kath - it's full of runners and super cool running shops!!
I like it when the weight is a-going! Laziness is an old friend of mine too LOL but we gotta just do it hey. I thought about the cold this morning for a second at 5.45am but then thought stuff it, I'll warm up in less than 5 mins. I actually like walking in winter and think I'll enjoy running in winter now too. I couldn't imagine running in summer with how much I heat up now?? Something still yet to experience.
