I’ve had a request to blog while on our PeruBolivia Adventure … If there is wifi (I remember, I’m so soberish, can lift my arms, move at all, can find my iPad, remembered to pack the charger, not lost, partying, sleeping) you can virtually join me!
I’ve tried to train on my own. For a while I actually believed I would do it. Mostly while sitting on the sofa, drinking a glass of wine on a Sunday night planning my week. To my credit, I was very consistent with the sofa, wine and planning. The running however was minimal. The winter arrived and minimal was downgraded to none existent.
I joined a 5/10k running group last week. Turns out paying to run has brought back my motivation.
On Monday night we had a 5k route. There was a group of 6 of us, all faster than me. I am overjoyed to run without stopping even if it is ridiculously slow. We headed out. They soon pulled away. About 2.5k into the run I notice up ahead some runners heading south through the intersection. Less than a minute later another group headed through the same intersection heading north. I thought how great it was to see so many runner out on this frigid cold and dark night. I crossed the intersection when I heard some runners behind me. It was my group. My faster than me group. Turns out they were the same runners that I had seen heading south, then north and now east. They were lost 🙂
It’s been so long, my computer stopped remembering my account dets. I [am] probably not even [using] the same computer!
I may actually attempt to make regular posts over the next few months.
May. That’s insurance when I look back in 3 years time and laugh at this random post.
I’m heading to Peru for a Race2Adventure. Which means I have to run. Preferably have run before getting to Peru. And since I can’t afford to take you all with me, I will drag you (the one person who either still checks this page, or stumbled upon it accidentally) on my training (typing that made me laugh) journey … cue Steve Perry.
