I’ve somehow or other got dragged into running a 5k in October. I do a fair bit of cycling, but I’m not really a runner. I’ve had to start very slowly.
I’ve got two pairs of very old (10 years +) tracksuit bottoms. They are comfy, but now have holes in them. The event I’ve entered in is called ‘Run or Dye’ and you get blasted with colour all round so I will be wearing a pair for that after which they will go in the bin. What I did realise was that I could probably treat myself to a new pair of joggers after 10 years.
I’ve been putting off going shopping for joggers because I just couldn’t face it and have had a lot on recently. Yesterday I decided to get on with it and headed off to the shops armed with some M & S vouchers. I’m always amazed at the way people walk round zombie like on a Saturday afternoon clutching bags of stuff. I can’t get my head round shopping as a leisure activity. It’s just boring, boring, boring.
Luckily I found some joggers in my size (not always easy as I’m quite tall) and my vouchers covered the cost. As soon as I’d bought them, I was straight out and home again, no hanging about.
What do you think of shopping as a ‘leisure activity’?
Until next time, Tawney x
