Over the summer months, I have debated to buy a treadmill or not.
The answer has always been …NO get out and run in the fresh air whether it is dry, wet or cold! The peace and quiet of my own thoughts racing around in my head, heavy breathing when I was unfit, the thud of my heavy footsteps to eventually listening to my surroundings…. I loved it as it’s my therapy! No music for me!
Then the later holidays came and I struggled to run outside due to childcare. School restarted, kids’ school bug sickness came and went, and I am strugglying to fit my running in ….
So when a friend was selling a treadmill …I changed my mind. Surely it is better to run on a treadmill in the garage in the winter months rather not to run at all as I’m finding it hard to run with dark nights and i have difficulty finding childcare …and I’m exhausted.
Childcare is now an issue as my husband died in March. I am surviving and strugglying at the same time and the running is important to me… if I stop running, I think I will crumble and I don’t want that to happen.
My running is ok and I hope to run tonight once the kids are in bed….. How is your running going?
And I hope you are living life to the full …I am trying to …now!
