I’m trying to get back into the daily blogging habit just in case I fancy doing Janathon, I’m not sure if I’m going to participate at the moment as it might impede my Marathon training. As jogblog (miss Janathon herself) is also running VLM I may take my lead from her as I was always a follower at school – if she does it I’ll do it!
Anyhoo, I’ve decided to switch my non-running training to mornings, as the last thing I feel like doing when I finish work at 7pm is dragging my ass to the gym. As regular followers will know, I’m no Shaz…5.30am has previously only been on my radar as a bedtime, not a getting up time, so it will be a struggle. However the smugness I felt sitting at my desk at 8.50am this morning knowing I had already completed a pretty impressive 2 hour workout (if I do say so myself!) whist my colleagues were moaning about the exercise classes they have to go to after work was worth it!
On a slightly different note, have I raved lately about how AWESOME I think the yoursoleuk insoles are. If I am able to run again from Thursday I think its is 80% down to twearing them and 20% rest and exercise. For people who overpronate and suffer ankle/achilles issues, I can’t recommend them highly enough. You might be thinking, oh she got them for free blah blah, but that is not why I am mentioning them, I’ve already published a review. Please take a look at their website – if nothing more, for the sake of £35 you could save yourself the pain of an injury and the anguish of not being able to run – I certainly wish I’d found out about them earlier.
