So I bid for a place in the London Marathon on a bit of whim - one of those 'oh that'll be fun and life affirming' moments. Then I got a place. And now suddenly I find myself at the gym, attempting to 'run' but actually walking and getting off when it all gets a bit hot and sweaty.
I need someone like me. Who is trying to run, but is failling to enjoy it. Who hopes to achieve something, anything, but is far too quick to sit in the sauna when out of breathe from running.
And I'm guessing I'm not alone. There must be other (insane) folk out there who find themselves intimidated by the running clubs, and have to admit to others when told 'oh I bet you can run for hours' that actually, 2 minutes at 8km an hour sends you into a respiratory distress.
I would like someone in the east sussex area to share my experience (misery) with. But don't feel like you can't advertise for your own non-running running partner here. I refuse to accept I'm the only non-runner 'running' a marathon....if I can't find a physical running buddy, I'll take some e-buddies. At this point......I need all the help I can get!
p.s. if you bold your location, people won't have to read through all the dribble (like you just did!) to get to what they want!
