get thee to a runnery!*

Wanted to plug this book. Does exactly what is says on the tin (so far). I'm not exactly at Willow's level yet but it's quite fun to be following a fitness programme that doesn't seem as if it was designed merely to mock me. If I can do this anyone can. Don't look for me on the main roads though, I've been frequenting quiet country lanes at twilight, pretending I'm out for a walk if a rogue tractor passes by!

*with thanks to DrG for the title

a great title :)running to the sound of music :)
It's not the running but the breathing, smiling and talking bit that I can't manage at the same time....I am slightly tempted though...

if you run on your own (as i do) you only need to do breathing! i am also finding that some tunes work really well, and unexpectedly so, when running. loving nick cave at the minute and anything in 3/4 time, oddly!

well i'm obviously jealous! so you'd better put on that half a stone to make me feel better! (not that i am actually losing weight with the running- that would require a lack of bagels etc. not doing so well on that score....)

order the running book. it is really really good. i can't believe i have been going out running for three weeks now. it must a very pretty sight...

Mr. T, well done. I mean it. It's a daily choice you're making. And you're inspiring me to get back out there in search of endorphins... and maybe to be more brave with my ipod choices than poptastic melodies...

i think the waltzing and nick cave suit me because i'm so slow!
