It's been a long couple of days. This man flu thing is still lingering.
Rick taught me something I never knew that I did incorrectly. Doing up my shoelaces. Seriously.
All these years I've been doing it wrong. It has made a difference to the way my feet feel in their runners so I'm very happy. I've asked Rick to post a video explaining how to do it. Once it's done i'll pop it into this post for everyone to see.
Back to running.
I felt much better after my last run so I figure it can't hurt to do another session.
People speak a lot about endorphins and that sort of fancy talk, but for me its about how I feel in my own body post-run.
I feel that I breathe a bit cleaner, my lungs fill more, my clothes feel like they fit better and parts of my body are just a little bit 'tighter'.
I know it's mostly in my own head but isn't that a great positive about this running thing? Better self-image and more confidence?
I know a lot of people, including myself, that could benefit from that. Maybe this running thing has more to it than I initially expected.
