Ah running...I used to be quite good at it (well, I mean 30 minutes on the treadmill quite good, not marathon quite good) but my running stamina is the thing that slips the most when I've got out of the habit of exercise and that's why I've left it until week 3 of my Fit February posts (weeks 1 and 2 here and here) in the hopes that I've regained some sort of fitness level over the past two weeks. Last week I managed all my planned YouTube workouts which I'm so pleased about seeing as I didn't start them until Thursday!) and I'm feeling so much better for actually doing more exercise. It's annoying that I struggle with motivation for something that actually makes me feel better!
I went out on Thursday for the first time with my only goal being to run for as long as I felt that I could, with the thinking that I could base the rest of this week's training on that time. Well I basically managed to run to the shop and back which is probably max 7 minutes so I'm not holding out much hope for today! I'm actually away all weekend so won't get the chance to exercise, so I'm a bit gutted at only managing two sessions this week!
I'll let you know how I get on in next week's post, but I would love to hear any tips you might have about running - how to get into it properly, how to get your stamina up etc - any tips would be useful to be honest! Now wish me luck running in the freezing cold!
Are you a runner?
