Archive for ‘September, 2013’

In some of my blogs I will be drip-feeding snippets about me so you can get an idea of who I am and where I’m coming from. This blog includes a confession.

I don’t like running.

There, I’ve said it, it is now in the open.

Since turning 50, my life has encompassed a healthy lifestyle and that included entering races because I felt I should. I’ve completed half marathons, a 10k and a couple of 10 milers but all had one common thread – I didn’t enjoy them. Earlier this year I decided that I wouldn’t run unless I wanted to or was out with a client who wished to. So imagine my surprise on looking out of my window this morning I actually thought “I don’t want to waste this glorious morning inside so I’ll go out for a 30 minute jog/walk”. So that’s exactly what I did.

It wasn’t a fast run. It wasn’t a pretty run. But it felt good to be out in the early morning September sun along the River Thames.

I do, however, admit that these new trainers looked good (even if I didn’t)

Moral: exercise is good for you – that’s a fact. But it is so much more beneficial if it is something you enjoy.

As the sun was still shining, I took the opportunity to sit in the garden with my books and diary. Although I do use an electronic diary, nothing quite replaces my paper version in which entries are colour coded for ease.

Week planned in detail. Month planned in outline. Tea drunk. Time for rest.

Slightly out of character for me, photos were taken to record the fact that today I was actually wearing ‘proper’ clothes and not workout kit!

So, is your Sunday for work, rest or play? Do share ……..
