I haven’t been running outside for ages — the last time I went, I ended up walking most of the way because my legs hurt so much. Since then I’ve been doing lots of training at the gym but that’s not exactly running.
Yesterday, in the break between insane winds and storms, I chucked on the runners and headed out. Still lots of aches and pains and I only managed a slow 5 km with lots of walk breaks but I got out there.
The goal now is to improve on that and get some fitness back. Since I had my flu a few weeks ago, I’m finding it hard to exercise. My heart rate gets crazy high and I feel buggered. I guess if I’m giving it 100%, that’s the most I can do even if it’s a smaller 100% than it was a couple of months ago.
OMG there is a guy I like who owns a shop in my neighbourhood. Sometimes when I go in there, he gives me food to try. The other night I went to buy a few things and he handed me a bag, asking me what I thought. I thought it looked weird but put some in my mouth. Yikes, it was some kind of weird herbal tea! I had to spit it out. I really know how to make a classy impression.
I am totally the worst person at flirting etc anyway. I have this horrible fear that if I do anythign like that he’ll think I like him! Yeah, I have not moved on from like being 12 years old. Also I’m not sure if he likes me or if he’s just friendly cos I’m a regular in the shop. Argggghhh!
