I have been running.
No not over hill and over dale. Just on my treadmill.
Yep, whilst the rest of the country was boozing and betting
on the Melbourne Cup, I hit my treadmill and astounded myself by
running 20 minutes straight and clocking up 2km.
Now I realise that this is small potatoes for anyone that might
have an iota of fitness in them and runs marathons etc, but for
me, super sloth, it is huge!!!
What blew me away, and I am quite serious here, is how it affected
me. I may as well of been boozing ! I felt high for the day - after
stepping down from the treadmill I was racing around like
a woman possessed, just like I had the day before (I had run 10 minutes
straight and clocked 1 km something I had never done before)....It was like
being on drugs, but good ones!!
I did hit the wall later, I was chatting to a friend that evening, started off
all chipper and zingy but felt like my batteries had run right out
by the end of the call - I could feel everything slowing down like a record
being played on slow speed - poor friend, hope she didn't think it was a reflection
of her conversation!
So due to sore legs I rest for a few days and then I cannot wait to
get some of that yummy feeling again. I'm feeling an addiction
New goal : run a fun run for charity. Yeah!
