RUN FOREST, RUN
It might have taken me one autumn, one winter and one spring to get to the park, but as soon as the Summer came (well, that’s arguable), I’m so happy to be outdoors running again. Even it’s just a couple of times a week. For someone who works from home most of the time, getting a bit of fresh air every morning is a must. One thing I’ve yet to master though is making my morning run a priority. I’ll admit, it’s difficult. I’ve always been a responsible person and have always put my family and work first before I did anything. Overly rainy and windy days make a great excuse to get stuck straight into work after the school run putting the running off until the evening. By the time the evening comes of course, I have “other things to do” and so the guilt, the tension and the stresses from a busy day carry on until the next morning. Undoubtedly, having a huge impact on my sleep, mood and state of mind. My body and heart tell me to “run it off” and my mind is saying “you have more important things to do”…
Anyone identify with me?
The weather… Rain and wind…The greatest excuse of them all for aspiring outdoor runners. And if you ask me to talk about about my favourite running sessions in the park – they were all in the rain. The breeze and the way it cools you down while you run. Bliss. There’s NO bad weather for running, just bad choice of clothing (I’ve talked about it here already). Funny thing our ego, huh? Always wants to protect us, keep us in the comfort zone without risking or trying anything new. But as soon as we ignore it and do what our heart tells us to do, we feel this sensational sense of achievement, satisfaction and pride for ourselves. And that applies to all aspects of our lives, not just exercising.
This letter is essentially to myself, but also to you. Lets listen to our hearts more! ♥
A special thanks to LABEL who have inspired me to write this post and who are continuously making me look and feel super stylish with their sportswear. Wearing everything Nike, but you can find more Women’s sportswear brands here including Adidas, Reebok and many more all with One Day Delivery.
Important to mention that running outside without music is not as enjoyable. Running with music, but with “spaghetti junction” wires getting in the way is probably even worse. Guys at SUDIO have sorted me out with these Regent wireless headphones that are super stylish, sound amazing and even come with interchangeable marble caps. Really recommend them and you can get yours for 15% less with my discount code: LAFOTKA15.
Have a great week guys!
