Dear diary I managed to go running today again for another 20 mins. I have to admit I was moving a bit slower that I did on Wedensday. Strangely this actualy helped. OK a tortoise could possibly have passed me, but by the end of my run today I did not feel as sore or as breathless as I did on Wedensday. Will try and keep to this pace for the future if I can keep myself going on future runs.
It was raining as I ran today which rather strangely I liked. As I said to myself if I can get motivate myself to run in the rain there may be hope for me to keep up running.
Remebered to do my stretches today aftewards. Felt a bit weird but hopefuly it should help prevent any stiff muscles.
Took my ipod with me and had it on shuffle as I went along. Ipod came up with 4 rock/metal songs and 1 kind of country song. Which god knows how that got on there. Enjoyed the rock/metal songs as I ran so I think I will use them in the future to keep me going.
Dear diary my legs are so sore and stiff i feel like I have been walking on stilts today. Stuttering here and staggering there. I think maybe I should have stretched after the run yesterday. Always remember people mentioning how you should stretch after exercise. But then I thought I hadn't really done much yesterday so I wold be OK.
Exercise wise I admit I have not done anything today. Mainly as I still feel sore from yesterday and I did not get home from work till 9pm. Not excuses as such, just being realistic.
Still managing to stay off the fizzy juice which is good.
Today's slogan: ALWAYS STRETCH AFTER EXCERCISE.
Score wise I would say it's a draw today. As not realy a chance to run today.
Dear diary a strange thing occured today I actulay went for a run. I put on my training shoes and ran for 20 minutes. O.K. when I say run it was more a slow jog. But I managed it I got out and did some excercise. For 20 minutes my legs moved continuously and I kept going.
The strange thing is I enjoyed it. My legs felt like lead and it must have taken a near lifetime for my breathing to get back to normal but I feel as if I have achieved something. Not much I admit but a step in the right direction. Even the couch was still there for me when I got back home.
Think I will have a slogan for today. THE FIRST STEP ON THE ROAD HAS BEEN TAKEN.
Dear diary today I was really looking forward to running but then I had to .........
Well to be honest there was nothing I had to do. I didn't have to just sit and read or play my computer games. But then it was something that I always do so why brake the cylce right? Do what you always do and you can not be disappointed.
Still did not drink any fizzy juice today but I kept my belly happy by eating some more junk food and good old frozen meals.
There is always tomorrow right? I can go running then. Just because I have not run so far does not mean I will not run tomorrow.
My belly just laughed at me again and advised that it would make sure my favourite place on the couch would be warmed up for me.
Dear diary you know I said yesterday that I was going to start running. Well guess what? I stayed in and watched tv again. I couldn't help it the re-runs of Frasier are too good to miss. You know how I like to sit and laugh at the same episode time and again.
My belly is very happy too I must have had at least two packets of crisps and a few biscuits. Keep putting on the pounds it was saying to me. You know u can't get fit as you will give up anyway. My belly though has fallen out with me slightly I never had any fizzy juice today. I kept having water and cups of tea.
Still though despite this slight improvement in no fizzy juice, I am afraid diary the score is:
