I’m slowly starting to enjoy the run!

I’ve said before, I’m not a runner, but I’m finding it harder and harder to be sedentary. Don’t get me wrong, I can eat crisps and watch telly with the best of them, but then I get huge pangs of disappointment. I’ll end up feeling, well, slovenly and sorry for myself. My family and friends bear the brunt of my internal disappointment when I miss a session, but I’m now coming to terms with the causes and seeing the reasons, I just need to figure out how to control it!

Guilty Pleasures

If I miss a session through other commitments I feel terrible. I’ll then rationalise it and feel terrible that I feel terrible. I realise it’s family time I’m sacrificing but with their patience I make time and can make a session. The blocker is internal. The investment in a decent run/bike/sink session brings me back a happier person so I need to start seeing it as making me better for everyone, rather than a selfish option (which it is!)

So my plan, take more photos, enjoy the time and realise it’s a part of my life for now which contributes to a better me….that’s the theory. Oh and take the bins out more, that would probably help balance it at home!

How can I not want to run when I have scenery like this?  Watching the storm front come in with 3 miles to home is hugely liberating.


I need to start logging where I run with the camera more, there are so many great sights and sites that I’ve seen over the last year but I don’t stop to enjoy.

Short post, but it felt a shame to waste the photos, so there’s now a gallery page. Let’s face it, it’s for me to look back on as I get old!
