As you know, I set my sights on running a fair while back and I know how much you’re all dying to know how I’ve been getting on.
What’s that, you hadn’t given it second thought.
Anyway, the good news is that a little over a week ago, I managed to run 5k not once but twice!
I did feel slightly pathetic at celebrating my victory when thousands of people, including friends of mine, had run the London Marathon but you’ve got to start somewhere right?
With my achievements though I did get the most painful shins so ventured to my local running shop, where Mo Farah once worked!!
There I stood on this clever machine that looks at how you stand and some other technical foot things I can’t quite remember where they heat up special inner soles to the shape of your foot. Then, and this is the big one, I had to run on a treadmill.
IN THE SHOP.
I more than pleased that I didn’t fall off and also that there was nobody that I knew there 🙂
On the treadmill, you are filmed running and try different running shoes which you can then watch back to see how your foot lands.
It was pretty cool and I am now the owner of some nifty new trainers that are designed for running, unlike the ones I was wearing before.
I’m not sure I want to admit that I’m looking forward to trying them out.
Olympic gold here I come.
On a completely different note, last week I wrote about the garden and wanted to show you a picture of how it’s bloomed since.
