I work with a bunch of fitness freaks. No seriously. We are talking people that come into the office after a work out and can’t walk for days. We are talking about people who go mountain biking and come back covered with bruises and slashes and great bloody scabs.
We are talking about people who run 100KM DEATH races. Yes, you read that right, it has the word DEATH in it, and they did if for funsies. These are people who think that Iron man’s are a stimulating day (It has the word Iron in it. People are NOT made of iron. I am sure of this.)
I am the only sane person around here.
I do yoga. Sometimes I take the stairs. Some times I even take the stairs to go up floors.
And really, that’s about it.
And occasionally, these co-workers of mine, they comment that they hurt after a run, or a work out or a something. I universally tell them the same thing. . .
“Don’t whine to me, I told you that exercise was going to kill you”.
So, I’m not sure what it means, when I got this urge to start running again. Oh, I used to run in university. I’m not particularly good at it, and I never will be (it’s the short, stubby legs), but I did it, and I enjoyed it.
I checked out the Running Room, and their course doesn’t start until Jan (I’ve missed 3 weeks of the other course already, so that won’t work). You prepare for the St. Patrick’s Day Race.
Which means I’m asking you. I don’t want to be the only person who can’t manage to run 20 minutes at a stretch at the end of the clinic. Maybe I should start now. . .
Any suggestions on getting started?
