Out for a run

Despite the headache/med issue, I am trying to keep on keeping on.  So at PT today when I was cleared to do cardio (as long as it doesn’t hurt) along with my at home exercises I was excited.  (I had taken last week off everything besides walking so I could focus on my knee).  I checked the gym schedule, but all the spin classes were full.  🙁

So since it wasn’t raining and the sun was sort of out, I decided to go outside and run.  I figured that since I am going to Write this Run, I should well, get out and run.  Crazy, I know.  I walked over to Kelvingrove Park and did a few rounds using the C25K app.  Despite the hills, I had no issues at all.  I actually felt good.   (I normally prefer to run on the treadmill.  I know I’m a weirdo!)  I was surprised at how “easy” the run portions were; I guess all the lifting and the spinning has helped!

(I realised how crap my running playlist was today, ugh!)

I was out for about an hour which included walking to the park and back.  It was really nice to be outside and to just be.  (Except for the part where a group of people pointed and laughed at me, that wasn’t fun at all.  🙁   )  I know I am not the most graceful of runners, and that whenever I work out I get as red as a tomato, but that doesn’t mean I want or deserve to be laughed at.  It really gets me down when things like this happen to me; like last year when I got spit on and called a “Fat bitch” while I was in London.  I just don’t understand why people feel the need to bring others down to make themselves feel better.

I hope that with the added exercises from the PT that I will be able to incorporate runs on days where the weather isn’t complete shit here in Glasgow. I am glad that one aspect of my life is coming together.  🙂


Have you had any great NSV’s lately?  Let me hear them in the comments!

    It sounds like you did great. Good for you! I get bright red when I do anything physical as well. My face burns. It’s stopped me from doing too much. Now that I’ve had my heart checked out and they didn’t find any problems, I guess it’s time to push through anyway. Thanks for the motivation. It won’t be running, but I’ll get moving.

    I’m sorry people are sometimes mean to you when you exercise. What a horrible thing. I just don’t understand mean people. Their lives must be so shallow and sad.

    Happy Sharefest. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

    I’ve always gotten red when I work out. I’m very fair, so it just seems more noticeable. It’s also fairly common, so I don’t even really think about it unless I see myself in a mirror right after running or spinning.

    I don’t get why people have to be so rude either.
