My latest purchase


Whilst not the most exciting purchase in the world, they mean a whole lot to me.

Yesterday I went out and bought myself a new pair of sneakers FOR RUNNING! Yes, that's right, I've taken up the sport of running. Although at the moment I haven't graduated to the outdoors yet, I'm still glued to treadmill exercise thing, but it's running none the less.

I've been following the Couch to 5K program which is the most painless way to graduate from being a couch potato to running a 5K race in only 9 weeks.

The application is available for iphones. Read all about it right here: http://c25kapp.com/

It really is a great program and it's at least gotten me up off my arse and doing something good for my body.

So, I'll raise a shoe to health & fitness!

good for you. Now all I have to do is take some of your motivation and rub it on me! ;)

I wish i could take a leaf out of your book!

I have been needing to do excercise for ages but never quite get around to starting.

The fear of going to a gym and making a fool of myself just does not appeal.

However the sort of excercise that you have undertaken does have an appeal to me - i think i will look in to this further.

Many thanks
