Two weeks later
I bought the trainers....never had the hair cut.
And things have got worse.....muuuuch worse....after the incident with the
day-glo legs, I decided I no longer wanted to look like King Kong's pregnant
aunt and when I bought the shoes, I actually bought running shorts! Oh wow.
(Yeah, not gonna go too far into that - but can be found in previous entries!)
Now I'm finding that I'm looking wistfully at the running jackets/clothes
whenever I'm near them, just wishing some schmuck would employ me so I could
"splash" out on them.
I get grumpy when I haven't run, and I'm like a dog stuck indoors on the days
when I have to wait to go out running.
My family are sick of hearing about running. Or swimming. Or walking. Or
horseriding. Or weight lifting. Well, lets cut this sentence short: they're
sick of me talking ;)
Anyone who didn't read my original post, which I have to assume will be most
of you may be a little confused. What the hell is the cat going on about? Well.
Two weeks ago I blogged about my DEATH DEFYING escapades.....I completed W5D3
of C25K. I also mentioned that C25K is very dangerous. Extremely so. You have
to watch out, otherwise things start creeping up on you: you've started
enjoying the running, you're redirecting most of your budget towards running
stuff, you're talking non-stop about running, swimming....basically anythign
that gets you the BUZZ. Am I right? I think so ;)
Anyway, more to the point. And yeah, I don't get to "points" very easily, as
anyone here who's read my forum posts will know. But anyway, the point. 2 weeks
on, I have just completed W7D1 of C25K. Did I EVER think this would happened?
Ha! As if. Not only that, but I was totally bummed out because I had to come
home from my run early (normally I do 2 x the day). FYI: running apparently
puts pressure on the lower body resulting in needing the loo. Pffft. My sisters
suggesting doing the business out on my run, but considering I run through the
park I might scare some poor child. Or get crept up on by a dog.
Bloody dogs. Has anyone else noticed they sneak up on you? Then you're being
assaulted by a hairy slobbery monster!? I mean, I'm a dog owner (I own THE
happiest dog in the world....if you're ever sad just PM me and I'll send you a
picture....she just radiates happiness. She can also say her own name....my dog
is a genius ;) ) Anyway, yeah, I'm a dog owner, but my dog DOES AS SHE'S TOLD.
It's not "here Rover" (she's not called Rover btw....that would be a hell of a
party trick) "no, here poochums, come to mummy" whilst dog laughs as it gallops
off to assault the nearest person. (although, she does appear to laugh at my
attempts to train her into doing tricks ./sigh. Damn terriers).
Anyway, the POINT. Right. I did have a point. Somewhere. Ummmm. Yeah my dog
rocks. Nope, wrong one.
Ah yeah, that's it. You don't get what you wish for. You get what you work
for. And this is the case for anything. You want it. You bloody go get it!
Don't let anyone, including yourself tell you any different.
New to C25K? Enjoy the journey - I'm having a whale of a time :)
I'm an ex-inhaler user, ex-lazy person, ex-running HATER. Do it, and have fun
doing it :)
