What I’ve learnt in 2012 #6: running

I am not Forrest Gump. I could not give Forrest Gump a run for his money.

I couldn’t even give Forrest Gump a run for his money for 28 minutes of baby interval running.

Because that’s ok. I’m going to smash this running thing. You see, I’m not a running kind of person, I was that kid who got far too puffed doing cross country. Treadmills bore me. Fresh air is a good thing.

So I downloaded an app which talks you through a warm up, intervals of running and walking (more walking than running at the moment) and then a cool down.

I got puffed as usual.

But I am proud to tell you that I didn’t get a stitch until the six interval.

I think I’m going to smash this running thing. Soon.
