Tonight I joined the ranks of the running fraternity!
It wasn't planned....
I was driving home from work after an early-ish finish, only 4.45pm and a gorgeous sunny Autumnal evening when I heard a voice- "its a beautiful evening for running". So after I twice nearly ran off the road with surprise, once when I heard the voice and more seriously when I realised it was my voice - I came home, I got changed, took some photo's of my new shoes and the lovelly new sports watch my hubby bought me today, then off we went and actually did it.
I AM A RUNNER!!!!!
OK so I did a 5 minute warm up walk, then 20 minutes of run 1 minute walk 1 minute then 5 minues of walking to cool down. But - and this is really important- I have read the runners world website advice for beginner runners and they say that as soon as you do your first run you are a runner - so it is official. And now I feel great - not aching anywhere different to normal and having a glass of wine to celebrate - that's OK isn't it?
The shoes are not quite as pink as I remember from when I bought them but altogether I think this is a suitably girlie ensemble?
