Learn To Walk Before You Can Run

I didn’t really feel much like running this evening. I started a new job today and, as is often the case with starting a new job, I was a bit bored. It’s not that work isn’t interesting; it’s just that I didn’t get to do very much other than watch other people, which isn’t much fun.

Needless to say, when I got home this evening I was feeling a bit deflated. I know, it will get better and I just need to be patient and learn to… what’s that thing they say… walk before I can run? Hmm… funny how the whole experience of running and training can put things into perspective, isn’t it?

So, even though I was in a bit of a downer, I decided that I would go out for an evening plod along the promenade. According to my self-styled C25K plan, I’m on Week 4 Day 2, which for me meant doing about 3.5K using a 4:1.5 run walk ratio. So that’s what I did, and you know what? I felt much better for it.

How’s your training going? Please share your thoughts in the comments.

  1. oh well done! Congrats on the new job… and brilliant for getting out the door…. thats half the battle done! Nothing better than feeling GREAT when you get home 🙂

    1. Thanks CeeJay. We had crazy thunder storms yesterday but seems to have passed now. I guess it’s heading your way now, but hopefully it will be nicer over the weekend. Enjoy! 🙂

  2. Congratulations on the new job! 😊 the first few days I always find a bit stressful and boring. I always like to do things. I always like how we can put running into everyday life too. I haven’t ran since the 10k I’d done last week…taking a week or so off to get the tendons recover 😉
