So myself and my sister’s have just come back from a really good long weekend of just eating food and not only have I put all the weight I lost back on (shock horror, need to get back into the saddle), but I’ve gone and done something stupidly stupid lol!
I’VE JUST SIGNED UP FOR A HALF MARATHON and 5K!!!!!!!
I must be bleeding mad!
Madder than the hills!
Super excited is what I really am!
We we’re in Liverpool on the Sunday to get the boat home and seen so many people who had run the Run Rock’n’Roll and well it made us dream, on the boat back we discussed the possibility of putting our names down, not even thinking. It was seeing that the pre-orders for tickets ended on the 27th and that the price was going to full price which forced our hands. If I hadn’t seen that I think we might of let it go to the wayside, as it is I’m so glad we didn’t as we’ll be doing this together!!
So just a wee bit of background since my ankle went to the dark side I’ve not ran anywhere let alone jogged. I won’t even jump!! Prior to my ankle going to the dark side I guess I could run for 5 minutes and maybe jog for 10, you’d be pushing it though!
We’re hoping (me and my big big sister/forever training partner) to start the couch to 5K on Tuesday and follow it through and then just slowly increase our own fitness. We’ll be taking our trainers when we go to Copenhagen and possibly the Christmas Markets with the hopes of running to work or back or both by March next year, that’s 11/12 miles each way.
So here goes to exciting times! I’m really looking forward to the challenge and making sure I document everything here!!
