Start All Over Again

At 8.30 this morning a very nice man called Colin knocked on my door with a very big package!  It put a very big smile on my face…

Item 2 on my “40 for 40” list is to run for 30 mins without stopping.  (It’s also the initial reason this blog started!)

I have been plodding in the mornings mostly, but I’m needed a bit earlier at work at the moment, and the early early mornings are just too cold to venture out from under my duvet let alone go for a plod.   Plus last week there was snow on the ground.  And it’s still cold.   And I’ll find any other excuse possible not to plod in the cold, so what better way to keep up the plodding than to do it indoors.

I don’t belong to a gym (as it’s usually closed by the time I get home, and I don’t really like them) so I thought I’d get a treadmill at home instead.  That way I can plod any time I like.  And, this isn’t going to be some expensive clothes dryer…oh no!  I’ve done the sensible thing, and I’ve hired it for 8 weeks.

Here is the big package Colin brought for me...

I think in that time, I should be back to fitness and heading towards that dream of 30 mins without stopping…  and hopefully the spring will start springing and I’ll be able to plod outside a bit more again.

Other items on the 40 for 40 list are coming along nicely.   I’ve signed up for email notification of the new season at the Globe for Item 24.  I’ve also pre-bought vouchers for two other ‘Beauty Treats’ for Item 8. And my December Treat of a mani/pedi is booked for next Sunday, so that my tooties look pretty for Christmas.

Now, I’m off to do my first indoor plod…  hope I don’t fly off the back of the treadmill like some bad youtube video!


P.S. If you also want to hire a home plodding machine, I hired mine from Home Fitness Solutions I’m sure Colin would be happy to hear from you too!

  1. Erm… We haven’t had much of an update on how your intense treadmill training is going…
