Three posts in three days - what's going on?
I must be feeling good and yes, maybe even like a real runner, Beth! Because yesterday, when the link for the SMH Half Marathon came up on Facebook, I thought (ever so briefly) to myself "mmm....12 weeks away...I could do that". Perhaps not yet. I think I need to really take into account the words of The Penguin, John Bingham that beginner runners should:
- Not run as fast as they think they can
- Not run as far as they think they can
- Run more often than they think they should
Or in my case, I look like this:
Damn - it was hot out there! Bring on autumn! But there were dolphins....
|Trust me - they were out there - if you think|
I'm running with my Canon EOS500D zoom
lens around my neck, you are having yourself on!
So, here are the stats:
I felt like I was running really well! But I guess I really do run like that little girl in yellow - or maybe I'm just destined to run like a penguin. But I'm running, and taking it easy, and stretching and foam rolling and trying really hard NOT to hurt myself again. Not fast, not far but at least 3 times a week (maybe I should try for 4?). And a half-marathon is in my sights...it won't happen overnight, but it will happen!
