I have been struggling these last few months with my exercise routine.
It all started when the cost of petrol / diesel went sky high and with my sons getting their jobs.
As I am away from home at week-ends I think its only fair my sons come first when I am here with them.
I have to collect one son from work twice during the week, and sometimes if he goes out I have to be the taxi driver.
So to be truthful the last thing I want to do is any more driving.
For a while I tried going to the gym in Downham Market straight from work but it just did not suit me.
Then a twitter friend suggested I tried running at night in the dark.
At first I thought she must be mad.. but the idea grew on me.
I live in a village where there is a shortage of street lights but also not much traffic.
The first couple of runs felt strange, I almost ran into a parked car, I never realized how dark it really is.
I now carry a torch with me and know when I need to use it.
This routine is really working for me and I have been out three times this week.
Its amazing what you can do with a little bit of encouragement and a positive attitude.
