About 6000 people just run down the street below our flat. All these folk were taking part in the Bupa sponsored fun run, which was in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.
This inspired us, after a bit of mutual encouragement, to go on a run ourselves. We’ve set a goal of completing a non-stop run around the perimeter of the Meadows in a eight week’s time. I think we’ll complete this target earlier if we stick to running twice a week.
Having just returned from our first “training session”, we completed a run around the Meadows, slowing 6 times along the away to a walking pace, and starting up again once we had gained our breath back. For me, running out of breath isn’t too much of a problem, it’s my ankles and feet that ache because of my mis-shaped flat feet. It’s about time I go see a specialist who can sought my feet out once and for all. For too long now I have suffered pain anytime I run for more than minute, which is very frustrating when trying to get fit.
