Most of January, I have had the urge to run. Not run from the issues I have been sharing with you in my blog posts, but as in the urge to go jogging. This urge to jog has surprised me, because I have not done any jogging/running, since I was a teenager.
Through stresses I have had and as I shared in a post and some comments of posts on my blog as well as other blogs, I have been walking off my stress. I have felt the positive effects from that when I have. But to feel the urge to run, has come as a surprise.
Even now, I have the urge to go running. It’s not as strong as in January, but it’s still there. My mood dipping this week and so I think that’s why it’s not as strong.
Trouble is, I have no trainers, or a sports bra to keep things in place. Trainers I have not worn since my 30’s.
As I have shared in an earlier blog post, or in a comment this year, money has been difficult. I would need to draw money from my savings to get appropriate running shoes, sports bra and a couple of pairs of jogging bottoms, making do with everything else I have. As much as the urge to run, at the same time I don’t want to spend. But I know from other bloggers that run, that running does help their mental health. I know that will be true, for the effects I had when I really put some leg work in when walking around my area quicker than usual, to work the frustration I had off.
Whether I will risk and spend, I don’t know. It’s the part I am not liking right now; the parting of money.
