Get Fit Mission!

Being a stay at home mum is tough, I have blogged about how stressful it is. I am with my children all the time and I very rarely get any time away from them.

I have been going on and on about running for a while now, and this week was d-day! I stopped off on my way home from visiting family and picked up some leggings and running gear. Went home, got changed, warmed up and went out. I struggled at first stopping and starting, having to walk every now and then but I managed a mile! My second run, I pushed myself till I could no longer run {well my lace came undone so had to stop and do it up!} I got further than I had the previous run without stopping so that in its self was a big thing! I still and to stop in-between to catch my breath but I managed a faster time on my second run which I am so pleased with and it makes the runs more worthwhile!

Going out also means that I get that needed space away from the children and lets me cool off from a stressful day! I am also doing it for other reasons of course, keeping fit {I am fed up of being such a slob!} I have managed 2 runs, and I feel so much better for it. Its hard at times and I have to admit, sometimes I think I cannot do it, but I push myself, to the end of the run.

At the moment I am just running a mile, I want to try and run that consistently before I push myself further. I am getting there and I think I am doing well, considering I have never ran/joined a gym/done any form of exercise in my life.. Ever!

I am so into it, and have seriously got the running bug! I feel completely different when I am out.
