Familiarity breeds ……….comfort

Feeling a bit apprehensive about going for a run after my bad chest,I decided to go back to the beginning with couch to 5k and reassured myself only 20minutes mostly walking.
I got changed into my kit and I felt different. A Pavlovian response? Running kit equals running equals feel good? I also realised that I love my trainers.

They are due to be upgraded soon but I will miss them. It’s a bit like your first -car maybe no other pair will ever be the same! Whatever it is I felt better when I got into my kit.
It was also good that I did the c25k. Compared to April last year when I couldn’t do a 60 second run it was good to be running the running bits! So there was a sense of progress and achievement.

Today I also booked a training session at the gym. The good news? It’s included on my gym membership! It’s a set up session with a review every 6 weeks so I think it’s just what I need.

All in all a good day for fitness.

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.
