I ran again!


Go me! I’ve been for a run, again. Yes, second in three days. I might just be getting back into running!

A few weeks ago Sweatshop opened a new store not far from me. Eek lock up my credit cards! They hold weekly running groups, Sweatshop Running community SRC and being less than a mile away I really have no excuse not to join in. I meant to go when they first opened but then got stuck into BMF and didn’t want to miss a Monday there.

But this morning I couldn’t make BMF and with one son away and the other out (no distractions) I grabbed the opportunity to get to SRC. I rocked up to the shop where I got my record card which gives rewards for weeks attended then 5 of us headed out with a member of staff towards hyde park. I expected a 5K loop but was delighted that they now run 7 or 8 km on Mondays because I need to start building my endurance after a long break.

Although we ran a loop I know very well, running in a group and having a bit of a chat makes all the difference. Not only to motivation and enjoyment but in holding a decent pace alongside the others. Definitely good for my running as my red faced melted look proved by the end (it was very warm and muggy tonight!)

Juneathon day 23.
5.5 miles run (4.88 miles with the group). I did run there as well but it took the whole way there for my Garmin to get a signal.

  1. Less than a mile really is close! You really will need to hide your credit card 😉
