So I got up early this morning and cycled to BMF.

Now the thing I like most about BMF is the diversity of it’s participants, there are all kind of people there, of all backgrounds and many different sizes and levels of fitness.

Today however I was the only overweight person in my team, and I was also the most unfit/slowest, which actually isn’t always the case. I really struggled today to keep up with the group, and this was frustrating cos I know I can do better. Looking at me today you wouldn’t ever guess that I completed a half marathon less than a week away.

Now I know I shouldn’t care about this, as I’m on my own journey. But I do care. I want to be fitter and faster and slimmer, and I wonder if I will ever get there.

    Don’t be hard on yourself, everyone has their off days. You did a half marathon just a week ago when most of the population were sitting on their sofas eating crisps and watching telly.

      Yeah I know, I’m just really keen to up my fitness, I seem to never improve. I just have to keep chipping away at it and not be so hard on myself.


  2. You will get there honey, just don’t give up. I know it’s easy to compare yourself to other people but you are right – it’s your journey and all you can do is focus on yourself. At least you are out there doing your thing so well done!
