I cheated on Nicky. With a treadmill.

It was raining!!!! And I've got new shoes!!!! And I love how new and unstinky and unmanky they are. I wanted to keep them like that for just a bit longer.

So I cheated.
I competed.

The guy next to me had his running pace up to 12. Mine was at 10. So you know what I did? Cranked mine up to 12. Sweat pouring off me. Cheeks bright red. Gulping in air like a fish out of water.

Why didn't I just turn it down?


I just had this fire in my belly to beat him.

Could have been the chilli beans I had the night before.

Best Run Ever

Best run ever.
And by "run" I mean "sitting on my bum hashing life out with my best friend in the whole world who if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be running and I can't believe she can't because she's busted her archilles".  That's what I mean by run.  We didn't.  But we did.

Read this if you're about to give up...

If you are struggling to stay on track know this... You are so close. So close to success. So close. You just can't see it. That's why it feels so far away.
If I told you that I could see it and it looks amazing and it was just around that corner you would keep going. You wouldn't stop.

I know you can't see it ... But it's so close. Don't give up now.

It really is just around the corner.

I hate my body.

Urgh. I hate my body.  I went to yoga tonight.  Twisting and turning my flabby and floppy and wobbly bits.  I hate my body. 
I love my body.
And just like that... In the middle of camel pose... Everything changed. I love my body. And I'm gonna start treating it with the respect it deserves. 
I love my body. 
For the very first time in my life ... I love my body. I've hated my body for so long now. I've been treating it like it's a useless failure that lets me down and embarrasses me constantly. 
My body ... I'm so sorry. 
Tomorrow I'll stand tall. I'll make no excuses. I'll be grateful. 
I. Love. My. Body.
