Funny enough I don’t think much whilst I’m running so it gives my mind time to switch off!Running is so good for the soul it really is. Frustrated at work or at home and I go running and I get the world sorted in my head. Great time to just go over things in your head and burn off those frustrations. Like you say, so addictive once you get into it.
So left my job where I was commuting 16 hours plus a week. First thing I promised myself I’d do is buy some decent running shoes and join a running club.
Having not run for years and it’s been tough but I’ve done 2 5 mile runs and a 5.7 mile. The latter was pretty tough with several hills!
Park run tomorrow.
Anyone else into running?
In time looking forward to getting on some races. Many moons ago I did the Great North, London Marathon and a few 6k so it’ll be good to try and do a few races.Hell yeh. Totally addicted. Although you really have to battle through the tough times with Running.
Got into it few years ago
I always wear Aosis trainers
Never joined a running club.
I now book one race a month. Either a 10k or a half Marathon and I try and do the parkrun every Saturday.
Best advice and most obvious is to just pace yourself at the start - don’t worry about people running past or trying to catch up others. Focus on yourself.
My best results.
5k - 25:03
10 - 51:20
Half - 1:53
