I have never been able to run, always too fat and awkward. Even when I started my journey and was walking 6km a day, I couldn't run further than white guide post to the next one, about 20 metres! I felt pretty disgusting and so was happy just to walk fast. I also never wanted anyone to see me run, stopping and starting, red faced and out of breath, really struggling holding my side with a stitch, too embarrassing!! So I was too scared to even try even though I knew my fitness level was much improved but today I felt like such a fat slug, not going to the gym and eating too much (bloody nuts I tell you, my undoing!) I decided to just try, and just to keep going, every time I wanted to stop, I told myself keep going, you're not in pain (and I wasn't, no stitch at all), you're doing great, keep going. The only thing that was painful was the very very cold air in my lungs.....that hurt and I coughed and coughed when I got back..lol. I know my hips will hurt tomorrow, but I don't care it was worth it!!!


mind over matter vanessa :) i think its great you pushed your body that bit further :) makes all the difference :) see you didnt get to go to the gym but you got to achieve something bigger and better :)

What a fantastic effort Vanessa.

I've just got to point out that whenever I am out there walking or running and if I see an overweight person running, I am sooo inspired by them and think to myself "GOOD on you!!!" and I usually try to make eye contact and smile, but so often people are so focussed on what they're doing, eyes down etc. that they don't see me :( Actually, I think that about anybody I see running. during the day if I'm in the car and I see anyone running, I'm sooo jealous!

I reckon most people would think "Good on you" too. I am part of a running forum and I know most people would think that, too. Sure, there are a few d*ckheads out there that would shoot you down in a flurry of insults, but never let that stop you giving anything a go :D

Actually, what I came here for:

1 x 25 min walk with dog
1 x 15 min walk with dog
1 x 20 min walk to supermarket & shops etc.

And I feel fine...I think I am well enough to hit the gym tomorrow :D - I'll take it easy though.
