Just. Run.

 

Let’s Run

Ok WOW. This is the first time I haven’t been able to keep up with all of the comments on the site – but I am going to try to get to them all over the next day or two!

I honestly wasn’t thinking about your reactions when I posted yesterday – I just wanted to be honest about the running being hard.



So I am overwhelmed by all your love! And you’re all right. All of you. You all had brilliant advice and support. As well as being less hard on myself (and running really does attract a certain personality, doesn’t it?) and sticking to the naked plan for awhile, I am going to step back for a week or so.

First and foremost, running should be fun.

Superwoman

Superwoman suggested I forget the next 10km race and just run!

I don’t have a deadline, I just have an overall aim. So for a week or so, I’m going to just run. When and how I feel like running.

Ok, cool.

 

Now, for some fun!

Robyn (who is tomorrow’s fit nut) has nominated me for a Liebster Award. I have done them before, so I’m truncating it – and I want you to take the questions away for your own blogs, ok?

 

1. How did you get into blogging?

On a whim. I just wanted to write!

2. Do you parallel park or drive around the block? 

I try one, then the other.

3. What is your favourite exercise and how often do you exercise?

Running. Running. Running. As often as I can fit into a week.


Let’s race

4. Have you ever had two dates in one night?

No – but I hope someone says yes!

5. Do you prefer the beach or the mountains for a holiday?

The mountains. I have a very healthy respect for the ocean. I want to be near it, but not in it.

6. Do you have a tattoo, if so, where?

Ok everyone, we all know the answer to this ;-)

Tattoo

7. What was the last book you read and would you recommend it?

This is devastating – I think the last book I read was on international environmental law. No, I wouldn’t recommend it.

Thesis

8. Are you a cat or a dog person?

Cat. Judge away.

9. What was the happiest day of your life so far?

I can’t answer this. I take pieces of all of my favourite days :-)

10. When was the last time you ate junk food and what did you have?

I just ate part of that massive slab of chocolate.


11. If you could be a superhero, what powers would you possess?

I love this question! I want to know exactly what someone needs to hear. Not because I want always have the right answer, but because sometimes it’s impossible to know what you need to say.

 

Today’s Moment

I like my thrills mild – I watched Grey’s anatomy while eating yogurt. Heaven.

 

Your Turn!

Have you ever backed off running?
What is your mild slice of heaven?

  6. Sometimes you just need to put your thoughts out into the Universe for a whole bunch of strangers to tell you that you’re on the right track, baby!
    Take a step back, breathe, have fun. The running thing just happens when you move your legs, but it takes a whole lot of soul, too!

    Can you share that chocolate? Please!

  8. two dates in one night… now that is an accomplishment! (:

  9. Superhero power hmmm….
    Before I would have said Effortless Weight Loss so I could eat all the fabulously horrible junk I love, but don’t allow myself to have.
    However, now I might say -
    The UnInjurable Runner is a much better super hear title for me. (Here is too hoping right.)

    Parallel park … yeah right! I would park a kilometre away and walk just to avoid such a hideous thing. I may be the worst driver in the whole world. I am sitting next to someone who would second that!!!
