Well tonight's the night...or maybe tomorrow will be the morning.
So far my running has been at the gym as opposed to out and around the village where I live. For some reason I'm more concious about heading out than I have ever been before...to the point where it's stopping me heading out.
Will have to grab a wig and sort my act together! I'm planning that dusk tonight or first thing tomorrow is likely to be the best idea for somebody who doesn't want to be seen.
Go out naked for your first run tonight then all the rest will be easy after that!
Don't be embarassed: you will still be running better than everyone at home on the sofa.
Or alternatively you could wear non-running clothes and pretend that you are late for something...
there's no shame in getting off ones backside and striving for a healthier lifestyle.
Thanks for the words of encouragement! I did get out and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be....but it was almost dark
Well done! Keep going!
Well done! As dancing in spikes said, you're better than all the couch potatoes!
I used to feel a bit self conscious but the more you do it the easier it gets. You'll gain confidence as you improve.
