Ok, I gave it a go, and decided outdoors running in any of my current shoes is a no go. I only made three-quarters of a mile and my feet were killing me today. It doesn’t help that I bruised my arches on the daft shoes with too much support yesterday, which I only felt when I’d done my 5k.
Perhaps I’ll always be a treadmill runner, but kids were bored, and nobody had to go anywhere, so we went out for a wee jog.
In the end, we eventually went to the park, before hitting Maccy D’s.
I have to admit, that I’ll never be too old to play on swings. I was too heavy for a while, but now I’m a more normal size, it was fun to climb the chutes and swing away like I used to do. Who cares if I got funny looks. I also love how my boys, even though they’re all early teens, still wanted to go play. I bet they wouldn’t admit that in front of their friends!!!!
We had a lovely evening, and it was worth getting off our bums, cold or not.
My 13 year old took these on his phone, so forgive the poor quality, but I’ve spent so long – not doing things like this, that I couldn’t resist sharing on my blog. Fitness has to become a much bigger part of my life, and hiding away has to stop.
The next time you go to the park, give it a go. You never know, you might just enjoy yourself…
