It's only taken six weeks, but I'm starting to enjoy running
As someone who skived off games at school and would do literally anything to get out of cross country, I never thought the day would come - but this morning, half way through my run, I suddenly realised I was enjoying it.
The sun was out, the leaves starting to turn colour and fall, and Doves' Kingdom of Rust blasting out of my iPod - and I thought to myself, this is a nice way to spend half an hour.
So there we go. A breakthrough. Whether I'll feel the same when I have to run 10k remains to be seen, but at least I won't be thinking up excuses about verrucas or hiding in the school toilets...

I have been back into running since the early Summer, and only since a cold three weeks ago and then a holiday have I felt like I have feel away from my routine. Now with dark nights I have been putting off heading out over the past three days.
Having read your comments...I realise that I need to make myself get out and I will feel so much better once I do.
