I went to a running club tonight and what a friendly bunch of people they were! Although they were also a complete bunch of sadists and made me run 4 miles at a faster pace than I’m used to. They were right to push me though as, left to my own devices, I reckon tonight I’d have probably shuffled a mile or so then given up and gone home.

They didn’t even mind that although I was going faster than I usually go, I was still the slowest. The 70+ year old man who had looped back to come and run back with me (thank you Tom) said his wife was as slow as me. I wasn’t sure if that was supposed to make me feel better? Wonder if I’ll be doing 20 minute 5ks when I’m his age? Yeah, right.

Anyway, I was v. pleased with my 4 mile run and shall be going back next Tuesday although it has completely messed up my schedule which only started yesterday. Today’s run was supposed to be 2.5 miles. Oh well.

Also my “no drinking ’til after the 10k” which soon turned into “no drinking until after the 5k” tonight turned into “yay I went to a running club and ran 4 miles so I think I deserve a glass of wine”, so I went home via the offy. I haven’t had a drink for a week (yes, that’s a whole 7 days, eek!) and I can tell you this wine tastes sooooooooooooooooo nice 🙂 Yum yum.

No stats as I didn’t wear my Garmin but I went 4 miles and it’s been 12 days since I had a pizza or any chocolate (or crisps for that matter, even though crisps weren’t part of the bet).

Oddest search engine query of the day:

  • Cool 😛 I’d like to try a running club, but I’d never get home in time for one :-/

    I bet the wine tastes greaaaaaaaatttttttttttttttttttt

  • I wasn’t sure if I’d like it as I’m used to just me, my iPod and my own little world, but the people were so nice and encouraging, I had a great time.

    You have no idea how nice this wine tastes 🙂
