Race For Life Training // Day 1

After yesterday's post, today I really wanted to push myself. So, I got up, had breakfast, finished an episode of Sex and The City and got changed into running clothes. Yes everyone, I did it, I went outside in the real world, and ran. I'm not going to lie and say it was amazing and I've never felt better... It was awful, I was out of breath so easily, I was warm, sweaty, red-faced and it was so windy. Today I realised the huge difference between a run indoors and outdoors. Wow. How do you runners do this?

I don't know why but I thought it would be a breeze (it was literally blowing a gale). I could not run the whole way and switched from a fast walk to a jog/run... I don't even know if that's good. I used the Nike Running app to track it and my aim was to run for 20 minutes, here are my stats:

Exercise and 'The Feeling Good Effect'

As my phone chimed an email notification, I shuddered as I read the words, '6 weeks to go.' How did the Race For Life come around so quickly? For weeks months, I have been putting off exercise and comfort eating, blaming it on the stress of my degree... I no longer have this excuse and am free for the Summer. Why. I have been saying to myself that I'm going to join the gym for so long, why do I keep putting it off? Money, to be frank. I don't want to pay so much for something that I could do at home. So why don't I get off my arse and jump on the exercise bike? There's just no motivation. At. All.

Binge-watching Sex On The City (even right now, as I write this post) is a habit that I must start whilst being on the exercise bike, or doing a pilates video on YouTube. One of the main reasons I signed up for Race For Life was to raise money for the charity, to give myself a target and lastly, to introduce exercise into my everyday life. Exercise is so good for you, not only will it make you look fantastic, it will make you feel like a Victoria Secret model.

Old Before My Time

Turning twenty really did make me grow up in a way that I never thought I would. I moved on to the next chapter in my life, left extra baggage behind, focused on people who actually cared about me and took important steps towards my education and career path. I've recently seen a lot of young girls calling themselves or their friends, 'Grandma's' on social media. People joke about this, but is it really a bad thing? These so-called Grandma's are the girls who are staying in on the the weekend to organise their week ahead, to steer their body away from binge drinking and getting a good night's sleep. Does that really sound so terrible?
