Not knitting

No new knitting to share today but just wanted to blow my own trumpet for a second for starting the Couch to 5K programme. Spurred on by some on-line knitterly friends on the Phoenix Forum I downloaded the podcasts from the NHS Choices website, dug out my trainers and went for it.

I have done two out of the three runs for Week 1 so far and have been surprised at how good I have felt. On previous attempts at starting to run I made do with timing myself on my mobile phone - which is fine except that it eeks out every second and makes it seem like a lifetime.

With the podcasts you just zone out, listen to the music and wait for the nice lady to tell you when to stop. Much easier and makes the time just fly by.

Off for run No. 3 tomorrow, or not, depending on how much wine is drunk this evening.

PS; Hexipuff total.....25.... just sayin'


  1. Great news on the running front - keep at it.

    I've bought the Beekeepers' quilt pattern. I also remembered the two grab bags of Colinette Jitterbug I bought to make into a linen stitch scarf (which isn't going to happen - knitting a dishcloth in linen stitch was tedious enough). So, I'll be hexapuffing soon!

  2. Thank you - am going to try and stick to it this time.

    Good news on the hexipuff front - look forward to seeing your progress
