Last week was my birthday and I was a very lucky girl.
I was treated to a new HP Chromebook which is amazing, chocolates, wine, a lovely little plant pot, a quotation plaque saying "of all the gifts great and small friendship is the best of all ", perfume and for my new passion, a new pair of running shoes which are bright pink!!
I have never been a runner nor exercise junkie but I seem to be slowly changing as I get older.
For the last 7 weeks my very good friend Emma Collins AKA The PR Mummy and I have been taking increasingly faster power walks which have started to turn into jogs...and do you know what?? I`m looking forward to our walk/runs 2-3 times a week.
Its not just the exercise I look forward to but the chinwagging that occurs for the duration of the walks!!
Its a kind of therapy for me and I have to say I am feeling so much better about life as a whole and am feeling the benefits of the exercise.
We are tracking our progress with the runtastic app and I have just been sent the Fitbug Orb to review and after only using it for a week I have to say I am in love with it and can`t wait to use it to its full potential with an indepth review is to follow.
Who knows, I may eventually manage to run the whole of our 5k route pretty soon????
