I’ve dabbled with ‘keeping fit’ before – a few stints at local gyms, a dabble with ‘My Fitness Pal’, but that’s about it. I know I’m not very active at all, my job is mostly desk based, and the most physical exertion I seem to get is chasing J around. I think I need to do something, I can’t really afford a gym membership, and I lack in motivation to actually DRIVE to the gym. It was usually okay once I got there, but it’s just doing it in the first place.

Body issues aside, I think I need to be doing something to look after myself, my eating isn’t that bad, but my body isn’t doing much. So, after a bit of a muse, I’ve been considering taking up running.

I’ve noticed a fair few of my friends on Facebook are into running, I’ve watched a handful evolve from couch potatoes to marathon runners. That’s pretty bloody impressive. The general consensus seems to be start slowly, use a ‘Couch to 5k’ app, and go from there. So. I need to find some trainers that aren’t knackered, and well, sod it.. I’ll give it a go.




So. Do you have any tips, any decent apps to try? (Remember kids –  Android ones 🙂 )

If I do it.. I’ll keep you up to date of my progress on here.
