I moved to London and now I never run

Standard

It’s pretty different to Leeds here. Until last night I hadn’t been for a single run here. I had many excuses. It’s always dark when I get home, I don’t know my area beyond the 10 minute walk to the tube.   
Last night I had finally had enough. It was Monday, I was bored and I’m sick of the cold I picked up last week. So I googled routes and set off on a shortish run. 
Halfway through my phone died which pissed me off beyond belief as I had no music or Nike+ record or Nike fuel. 
My nose also ran a lot. And without my phone map I was slightly lost for a few mins. 
I couldn’t run the whole way. The first half of my run was uphill and my lungs were burning.
  
It took me 30 mins to go about 4K. I am pretty annoyed that I’ve let myself get this out of shape. 
That all said, I felt good afterward. I am going to keep at this blog and maybe even start an Instagram to record my running adventures!

2016 ballot woes

Standard

I admit it. I have entered the London marathon ballot for 2016 before even running my first marathon I’ve signed up for. Days before my second half marathon.  That’s Β£39 il probably never ever see again. But what the hell. If I get a place it might just be the best experience of my life! DREAM BIG!
