I’m starting to enjoy my runs

19 Nov

I think that I have a “slightly” addictive personality if that’s even possible and I say this because I never thought I would enjoy running to the point where I think about it almost everyday!!!

I’ve hurt myself a bit and so I’m meant to be taking it easy by doing cross-training, that’s to keep up my fitness by doing other forms of cardio and weight-training. Still, I find myself drawn to the treadmill for a “walk” but inevitably, I end up running.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m no pro, AT ALL!!!! But what I think the big motivating factor is the small amount of weight loss and that is no small feat, trust me. Today, I tried on a pair of jeans in a store I’ve been dying to get into and what do you know,they fit!!!! They are one size smaller than what I’ve been wearing so I was over the moon but the hard work will not end with this post.

Having the time to go to the gym has made a big difference in the “Excuse Department”. My schedule has been so hectic while being a full time student that my heart actually sinks when I thing about next year and whether or not I’ll be able to make time to run. Races to train for, has also made a huge difference as  goals and it has given me much to work towards so at least that’s been keeping me on track. I do feel my throat tighten up a little at the thought of the upcoming festive season and all the unnecessary eating that goes on. To TRY and counter-act that I will pack my trainers and beloved sports bra and I will hit the road, even if I am just pushing Sam in his pram along the beach.

Another big help will be the Hubster, who also enjoys running so we can beat the bulge together. Um, let me rephrase that. It’s so that he can see me beat the bulge. God I wish I was as thin as him – damn it!
