Two things!! Yup I’ve done two things today that I have wanted to do for absolutely ages and I am very happy and ridiculously PROUD as procrastination is my absolute middle name.
Firstly I have done THIS yes THIS!!! I’ve been driving everyone fucking crazy for a good few years now with my insistance on using Facebook as some sort of mini-blog with my incessant daily wittering about my life – kids, dollops, shit parenting, great parenting, coping/not coping, occasional hangovers, driving my car into stationary vehicles, trying to get fit, running…..you name it and I have gone on about it. So I am still going to do that only now I have more room to crap on about everything and you can join me or run for the hills at your leisure…….I’d love to have you all with me though it’s so much more fun.
Secondly…..I ran 25 minutes without stopping today for the first time EVER oh yes I did!!! As you will learn I am not the sporty type. I am 40, weigh more than I ought to, have Multiple Sclerosis and have historically been the biggest exercise dodger ever and the thought of running? Um……not so much. So thought I’d start Couch to 5K. I have a love hate relationship with running as, well, basically I am shit at it and very slow but I hate to be defeated so I keep coming back to it and oh yes today despite being utterly terrified I only bloody did it!
So there. That’s it. As someone cleverer than me once said – if you don’t know where to start, start in the middle. So I have.
