I go running at around 6am, when there is little traffic, so I can just run and concentrate on nothing else. I like to have a podcast on my iPhone when I'm running, something like Money Box, The Infinite Monkey Cage or a football podcast.
This helps me to
Unwind - football
Be creative - Monkey Cage
Think about the business - Money Box
I'm not completely new to running, I was quite a good runner in my youth (double county champion at the steeplechase) and I completed my 2nd Great North Run, only 3 weeks ago (admittedly 19 years after my first Great North Run.) I think that the 6.5 miles I ran today is a steady distance to be running regularly, as I attempt some level of fitness and to lose a couple of stones.
As with everything on my blog, I'll keep you updated of my progress.Visit Amazon's fitness page and get ready to get fit!
