The urge to RUN

Postby mumnbub » Sun Jan 25, 2009 11:48 am

Lately I have been wanting to do some running and do a bit when out for my morning walk but its hard when your pushing a pram. But for some reason I have this bad urge to just get up and go for a run! I can feel my legs wanting to get going but I cant go anywhere- not even for a walk. 2 reasons for this-
1. My son is sound asleep and even when he wakes i feel really odd when running with a pram
2. Its raining! stupid rain is keeping me indoors

Now the odd thing is I cant really run for more than 2min at a time but suddenly feel like i could run for 30min plus- does anyone ever feel like this?

Yep! And I'm blaming that Jon Gabriel book for it. It's really brainwashed me into loving a healthy life since reading it. I don't have time for dedicated running at the moment, but I take great delight in jogging for small sections of my walk to uni and back. Hell, I'm going in today and I've decided to wear my running outfit rather than my usual work clothes just so I can get a bit more running in!

I read an account of a runner who used to take her young children to an oval, sit them in the middle where she could keep an eye on them, and then run laps around them. Given your son sleeps in his pram, would this work for you?

Just ran/walked to uni and I'm feeling GREAT! The more fun you have while running, the easier it is to do. And the easier it is to do the more fun you have!

If only my uni homework could be tackled in the same way. :lol:

I might try the oval thing, by the time we walk there if he is tired he should fall asleep so I should be able to do a few laps then head over to the outdoor gym which i have not used for a while.
The only problem is going at a time when he will be tired, by the time that happens its just way to hot! wont be so bad once winter in here.

Can you take some toys and let him play with them in the middle of the oval? Or will he just try to escape like little kids tend to do? :D

He would attempt to run after me and then start screaming if i got to far ahead of him lol, am actually thinking on Tuesday he is going to day care so I can go into class for the day so will drop him off at 6am, go for a run, have a quick shower and get on the 7:40am train. It will be a slightly more rushed morning and will have to get up early but it will be worth it
