More Things I Know About Running

Things I KnowOr lack there of.

I know that taking a break from running over the festive season and then suddenly expecting to still be able to cover the same distances in the same times as before the break is just ridiculously crazy.

I know that tomorrow I am probably going to be a little stiff and sore. Today was so much harder than what I expected.

I know that there were many benefits to my run tonight. One of them being able to breath in the beautiful salty air as the waves of the high tide crashed onto the rocks as the golden sun began to descend into the glorious ocean.

I know that I can't actually remember when the last time I went for a proper run was so it must have been at least two weeks ago I would guess. I could probably find out from my phone, but it isn't next to me right now and if I get out of this chair it is to go to bed.

These next few are actually on my original Things I Know About Running post. As much as I know them sometimes I forget to remember which is one of the reasons I am repeating them now.

I know that they really are the greatest reasons to make sure I don't let myself into the slump of not running again. It is awful and I don't like it.

I know that if I go too long between runs I get grouchy and grumpy. Little things that shouldn't bother me do start to do so. Which then of course leads to big things that tend to get blown up even bigger and before you know it there has been an explosion of epic proportions leaving us all worse for wear.

I know that I kinda like saying I am addicted to running, since you know it is so healthy and all, but I feel a little pretentious doing so. After all I am still such a newbie that sometimes I wonder if I really should even call what I do running. (If anyone knows of the speed that signifies the start of running rather than jogging or even walking, please let me know) The speed question is still open for suggestions by the way. The best I have yet is incredibly slow running ;)

I know that being able to notice a difference in my appearance has made me want to run more.  It has also made me just a little more conscious about how I fuel my body and what I put into it. All of which can only lead to more good.

I know that the only difference that I can notice in my appearance at the moment is one of increase. 

I know that the recent month has seen an over fueled and under used body.

I know that is all about to change...hopefully, possibly, maybe of course it will.

I know that I find it rather funny, that not 20 minutes after whinging over on my Facebook page about not being able to get a post out today...lo and behold a post! It is amazing what one can do when one sets out to do something.

If you know stuff you should totally go over to Miss Cinders and share all the stuff that you know, it seriously is the best way to get Friday underway. Not only that it is a great way to interact with some great blogs that you may not have already known about.

Since this post is kind of about fitness it will also link in with Fitness Friday over at Mountains and Musings


  1. I know I envy you being able to run. It's one thing I would love to do but can't. But maybe I should move my butt into walking instead of saying I should!

    Thanks for linking up gorgeousness! xxx

    1. It has taken nearly 12 months of practise till I have called myself a runner lovely, and even now I am doubtful if other runners would agree with me. It really does feel awesome though. And yes you should get your butt walking! So good for the mind as much as the body lovely

  2. I know that I don't "do" running. It doesn't agree with me. I'd rather go on an 8 hour hike up a mountain than go on a 30 minute jog. But super that it does it for you. And good on you for getting back into it :)

    1. I know that I used to say that I didn't do running either and now I feel bleh if I don't go every few days. I do like the sound of that mountain hike though

  3. Good on you for getting back into it Rhi. I can't run but I do love a brisk walk - for me, it's the best way to begin the day! I hope you don't pull up as sore as expected tomorrow!

    1. Turned out much better than expected, thankfully, guess I didn't push myself hard enough after all ;) A good brisk walk sure is a great way to start the day.

  4. THis post is certainly fitnessy enough for a link up! Thank you so much for playing along.
    How are you feeling after the weekend? Did you manage to do much? Was it hot? I don't know how you exercise at all up there! MInd you then in winter here it's very easy to use the cold as an excuse.. maybe i just need to ditch the excuses all together.


    1. Yep ditching the excuses is the only way to go. The heat does make it a little harder but then I figure the more I sweat the more I lose :) Thanks for hosting lovely


Fairy wishes and butterfly kisses to you, thanks for stopping by, it really means a lot, you taking the time so say hi. I try as much as I can to write a reply but if for some chance I don't get to it please know that I always read them.
