Today I’ve mostly been writing about running and feeling guilty. Guilty because it’s ages since I’ve been running and I just can’t seem to get myself motivated. Five a side football yes, but there’s something about the solitary pursuit of running that just seems like too much of a commitment at the moment, especially on a cold winter’s day and especially with dodgy knees.
That said, it’s a virtually perfect day for a leisurely jog around the park or even a more demanding run around the wood. It’s dry, not too cold and not very windy. I’ve also got most of the gear, including a lovely Nike running jacket and a pair of Nike Flyknit running shoes I was given on a launch a couple of years back so I’ve really got no excuses.
The only thing I could possibly do with is one of these nice TomTom cardio watches (pictured above) which measures the distance you’ve travelled, your speed and your heart rate as you run.
However, knowing me I’d probably spend most of my time looking at the screen convincing myself I was having a heart attack every time my heart rate went up over about 120 beats per minute and end up killing myself running into a tree instead!
