2 Lots of Exercise

I have finally come to terms with not doing the Auckland marathon but have not done much in the way of fitness for a few weeks. My friend, Anne-Marie, asked me if I wanted to join her for a run as she is training for the Arthur's half marathon (Saturday 18 Sept). The aim was to run part of the course and throw in some extra hills for good measure.

We left it until much later in the day and the running conditions were ideal. We ran from West Coast Rd to Carter Rd in Oratia to Shaw Rd and back to where we parked the car on West Coast Rd. It was only 7.7kms but I was pleased with our effort.

I enjoyed the run as I had a running buddy. We hardly ran together but Anne-Marie gave me the motivation to run, exactly what I need. I think I will join a running club for my next event...

The second day of exercise came on Monday with Moana. She asked me if I wanted to join her for a walk as she too has become a tad unmotivated where running is concerned and walking is also a chance for us to catch up and chat. I was keen to go. We walked for about 8kms.

I MUCH prefer to exercise with my buddies, there is no doubt about it.
