i never thought i’d say this but i am taking up jogging. since the first time they made us do cross county aged 8, i’ve known i am a dreadful runner, even when i was incredibly fit from 6 days a week swimming training i couldn’t run more than half a mile without coughing and spluttering for days afterwards (my theory is that my jogging style caused my lungs travelled out of phase with the rest of me.) whatever the reason, i was happy to accept it and walk or bus it everywhere
at least until today.. for the second year in a row, i’ve been challenged to do the london gorilla run. I can’t really think of any excuse this year i’ve signed up and so by end of september I have to be able to run 7k dressed in a gorilla costume..
assuming that i am not congentially incapable of running further than 800yards then this gradual program seems to be the way to go.
i’ll let you know.
and I will shortly be going around to take donations.
