So a few of my close friends and family may be aware that I am going to be running Brighton’s Half Marathon in February with two of my close friends and considering all things aside, Im not that great of a runner which is what I am trying to work on. I feel like my whole life I have come up with excuses like, “ah my asthma is playing up” or “no, its raining” just to get out of running. But the thing is, once I am out running I love it. It is such a stress relief for me and I really enjoy running (once I start!). I use the app Strava to record al of my runs and this helps me keep on track with my time/distance.
Ive found that If I go running or exercise on a regular basis my mental health is a lot better and I can control it more. When I run I feel a sense of achievement and Im happy about it, by having the goal of this half marathon it gives me something to work towards.
I thought I would start a mini series of how my running journey us going leading up to the half marathon. Let me know if this is something you would like to see on my blog and comment down below anything around fitness/health you would be interested in.
So to start with Im going to say how this week has been for me fitness and running wise. Ive managed to fit in 2 runs this week a 5K and a 6.5K as well as a few Blogilate’s youtube workout videos (which are amazing btw!). Ive been eating healthy on and off this week and that is something I want to work on in the next week and I can let you know how that goes.
Its difficult to fit running in and around 12.5 hour shift placements, and this week coming I think I may struggle… So if you have a
ny motivational thoughts please let me know below and help a gal out!
Also my friend Han is an amazing running and has some amazing inspiration and has a blog too, which you should totally go check it out! – Life with Han. She also has a Youtube channel too!
