Day 59: Run, BeeBee, Run

on February 28, 2012

I think it’s fair to say that when I’m down I tend to let things around the house slip.

I don’t however ‘get’ how I’m supposed to fit everything in before teatime. And I’m not about to give up my evenings or I’d never get the fun (and other not so fun stuff done).

Things have gotten slightly out of control and now The Husband has requested ‘I do something’ about the wool situation in the front room.

After spending yesterday evening and night making pompoms for what can only as a craft attack for the Beavers.

Today I also turned my thoughts to March 25th and the Comic Relief 3 mile run I have signed myself up for.

I got my running shoes on and hit the treadmill. The dawning realisation hit that I’ve lost my stamina over the winter. I can walk for as long as I need but running for me is something else. I run at a similar pace to what I walk (at time even slower). I don’t want to feel embarrassed by my times either.

I know that I should be proud that I can run and finish, all I can think is that I’ll be last. I hate the idea of being bad at something. Of failing. That my size is in anyway a limitation on what I can achieve.

Physically, at my size running isn’t a natural sport to compete at. Mainly why I chose it, and after an injury I had at school I was told I would never be able to run again.

It is also the best form of exercise, along with walking, for fat burning. It utilises pretty much every muscle in your body, I’ve often felt the aches and pains in my ribs & obliques (not sure what this says about my running style more than anything else).

Right now I’m running at a pace of 1k in 10 mins. So I just hope I can improve.

Diet hit the wall today as we had some shocking family news.
