23 Aug 2012: Just Say Yes


As I have mentioned before, it’s quite interesting to see what I feel like doing on a Thursday morning. I pretty much knew what I was going to do, when I went to bed Wednesday evening. Sure enough, I woke up in the mood to push myself into doing a bit of jogging.

I set out in a different direction to before, unsure of how far I would go up Warton Road, or which way I would turn. In the end I wound up doing a 10.8km circuit, which I felt pretty damned pleased about I can tell you! Even more exciting though is the fact that I jogged the whole way – as I have discussed on this blog previously, running isn’t my thing and even though this was “grandad jogging” I jogged non-stop for more than 10 km.

Consider the running demons from my schooldays, well and truly exorcised!
