Saturday 23rd May (Day 83)
On the run
Because I am unemployed I have a fair amount of free time on my hands and to keep myself busy and to prevent the onset of boredom induced insanity I decided to take up running as a hobby.
Running is a good hobby for me to do right now. I need to get some exercise and it is a great way of getting me out of my room and into the sunlight. It is also a great way to see more of Sydney.
These boots are made for walking
Jogging is popular in Sydney and in some areas there are more people jogging than walking. One issue I have with jogging though is I don’t actually own a pair of trainers.
The only comfortable footwear I have at the moment is a pair of walking boots I bought for when I go exploring the outback and the Blue Mountains. I must look ridiculous trying to do jogging wearing these heavy tan coloured walking boots whilst everyone else jogs past me in there lightweight trainers.
And the sound as well, everyone else is jogging quietly with their light trainers whilst I sound like I am marching.
Anyway I am quite enjoying running. Taking part in some form of organised running event like a 10k through Sydney would be a good target for me so I might add it to my to-do list.
And yes I will buy some trainers when I get a job.
