Exercise finally!

Finally today I got to do some exercise that can be entered in to runsaturday . Monday I received an email from them detailing my massive activity last week which was a 5 mile run. I could feel the disapproval emitting from the communication, ‘you slacker ‘ it seemed to be saying. I wanted to reply to it and say ‘I’m not a slacker I can’t run because she told me not to’ but that seemed childish.

Today the car needed to have an MOT and of course the original plan was to drop it off run home and then run back later to collect it. That plan was sidelined last week by the physio and her no running order, so  it became drop the car off and walk in to town for some retail therapy plan. The walk was a mile there and a mile back (probably 3miles in out of shops but had turned Mr Garmin off by then) this took a total of 30 mins 54 seconds. The retail therapy was not so productive. I need to get a new shock absorber bra, but want one without straps. Now I know that does not make sense but let me explain, one that does not have bra type straps but vest top type straps. This is what I am using at the moment. Had no luck with this whatsoever, most of the ones I saw needed you to have a degree in rocket science to work out what goes where, they looked like something Houdini would have spent considerable time trying to escape from. Imagine trying to get your body in to that kind of contraption at 4 a.m-No thanks. How can they be comfortable? So this afternoon with my trusty bag of peas safely residing on my knee I plan on surfing the web for a new sports bra.

The other form of exercise tonight will be ten pin bowling. Madam is away so Mum and Dad plan on a night out consisting of dinner followed by bowling, yep we know how to live dangerously.  I am sure I can enter that on runsaturday so that is good 2 lots of exercise in one day.

Strike!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    If you can’t find your no-straps bra, check out this one from M&S. http://tinyurl.com/4k7kmah
    It’s front fastening, and easy peasy to get in and out of.

    Ooooh – try http://sportsbra.co.uk/index.html I swear by them – do them in ALL sizes!

    Glad to see you back blogging – have missed your dulcit (cyber) tones…

  3. Also agree the sportsjock bras are good and easy to get into – unlike the shock absorber run bra which are good and impossible to get on!
    How’s the knee? are you getting back into running? Hopefully if you get it strong and rested you’ll be OK for junathon but maybe not 10 miles at dawn every day?
