Thinking about running

I've been doing a lot of thinking the past few weeks - about running and fitness and exactly what I want to do with that aspect of my life - now that it is not my priority.

I think that I do want to continue to have running as part of my life and that I need to work on making it part of my routine again.

I realise that I am going to have to make a concerted effort to get back to the mindset of regular training.

I need some points in the future to work towards and measure progress against.

Every month here in Canberra there is an organised run called the Women's and girls Jogalong. It is 6km and run through a big park kind of near my place. I was thinking of making this run a little goal to complete each month - to measure my progress against.

I do need a bigger goal at some point in the future but I also think that to get to where I want to be - I need to take small steps.

It is very appealing - now I just need to do something about it!

Sounds like a greta idea!
Be realistic in what you can fit in and it should work out for you.

Do you take Harris out with you?

Just because you cycle doesn't mean you can't run Amanda...

Hi Shar,
Sometimes I take Harris out with me. I can't really run with him around my local streets because the path's aren't good enough. But if we go down to Lake Burleigh Griffin there are really smooth paths that my pram can cope with. I bought a high end Jogging pram but it is still hard going.
