Much to my surprise I seem to have ‘got into’ running. At home and at work there is a natural round-the-block run that is exactly 1.5 miles. Not far I’ll admit but means that I can nip out for 15 minutes and enjoy a jog/run. (I never thought I would use the words, ‘run’ and ‘enjoy’ in the same sentence).
I was amazed to find how much easier it is becoming and how much faster I am getting … again surprising.
So, on Saturday I thought I’d try the Park Run thing (several years late to the table I admit) and turned up to the Newbury one on Greenham Common (with 500+ others). I loved it! Didn’t embarrass myself, ran all the way, and finished OK.
