Hello 2017!  Running Music Playlist

 

Happy New Year!  Time to get back to running after two weeks of a diet of chocolate, prosecco and Christmas TV Catch Up marathons.  I went into Christmas full of good intentions but by Christmas morning that had all evaporated and been replaced by a tin of Quality Street.  So a brand, spanking new year and a fresh start.  A cliché I know but I enjoyed Christmas, spending time with family and catching up with friends so I don’t feel guilty.  Now the challenge is to step away from the remains of the selection box and get out there running again.

Making the time

It’s not about having the time but about making the time

Motivational Quote

When you think you will never be able to incorporate fitness into your busy and hectic day you can!  Have a look at your day; where can you make the time?  You may not be able to manage to do a full session at the gym but a 5km run or 20 minute HIIT workout maybe more realistic.  Aim to incorporate fitness in your routine 3 times a week, once it becomes habit you may find you want to commit to more days or longer sessions.

Time to hit the Gym, this time I’m not quitting!

Time to Hit the Gym

Six months on ….

From initially taking up running I’d got into a routine and getting out and pounding the pavements a habit. However, I was also starting to find running a 5km fairly easy going despite mixing up routes and trying to improve on my time.  runningThen it started to happen; the prospect of putting my trainers on and getting out for a run rather uninspiring.  I suppose it was a case of now needing something else to motivate me to maintain my fitness.

Old habits can easily start creeping back

As I could have predicted my motivation to keep fit started to wane. 3 runs a week became two then sometimes one or none a week.  I was in danger of undoing all the hard work I’d done and forgetting the goals I’d been so proud of achieving.  Sitting on that sofa watching Coronation Street instead of getting out there was starting to become more appealing and the norm.  An old habit was starting to re-immerge.

So what next?

Here we go! Time to start blogging

Ok so this is my first blog ever

Scary stuff but here goes!  I’ve been told by a fellow blogger friend that you look back at your first blog and cringe.  I suppose it’s like that ‘bang on trend’ haircut/style/colour you had back in the day and now your toes literally curl when you look back at photos of you with said haircut/style/colour (mine was a perm).  So I need to post something in order to get said opportunity to cringe at it.

 

I’ve always wanted to blog but have felt that I can only do this when I feel that I something worth saying and about something I feel deeply passionate about.  Think it’s always been a question of what to blog about.  Then it came to me recently that perhaps I should write about my passion for Read more
