I just can’t seem to stay away from the running!
I’ve been running for about three weeks now, I’m heading into my fourth.
Though I am super proud of myself and what my body is achieving at the moment, I won’t lie to you guys. I still really hate running!
Today’s run wasn’t too bad but generally, my runs have been such a ball ache. I love to get sweaty, I love to work out but running feels like a massive chore!
So why am I doing it?
I’m finally at a point where my health is allowing me to do things but unfortunately I’m in the middle of nowhere at the moment. My options to get fit are the internet or running.
Plus, and I’ll let you in on a little secret here, I’m really hoping that one day I’ll just fall in love with it. Become one of those people who you see out running, sweating profusely but with a massive smile on their face and who are positively gliding along. Instead I drag my feet and have a permanent scowl, trying to convince myself to keep going and not to stop because if I stop I might just lie down in the middle of the road.
I also want to complete that half marathon that I never did get to do because I was too sick. I would like to be able to tick that off my list one day and run for the amazing people that sponsored me.
Hows the running and my health?
Well to be honest, my tummy seems to calm down on the days that I run. Perhaps its because I’m getting things moving. I’m not sure but I do know that the more mileage you clock up, the more havoc it can wreck with your digestive system.
Speaking of health, I’ve been a little up and down recently. I’m not sure if its because I ran out of my health supplement or what, but its been a tiny bit temperamental. It is a concern for me because the amount that I have been bleeding has increased but I’m hoping it dies down. I’ll be able to get my supplement in a month so fingers crossed it can stabilize till then.
And in personal travel news I will be on the go again in four weeks which is extremely exciting for me! I really can’t wait! I have my blog on my phone so hopefully I will be able to update here and there but it might be a little rocky until I find new accommodation.
Whatever happens, I’m sure I’ll have some awesome stories to update you with.
