Today: I Did That

9 Mar

Thats right people, I ran it, I walked it, I cried when I finished it. 13.1 miles smashed and in the bag. Paris has been well and truly stomped on by this British Badass.



You may all be thinking “Finally she will shut up about it” well you’re all wrong.

Why would I shut up about an achievement I’ve worked hard for? Why would I shy away and not tell people how awesome it makes me feel?

I’ve seen a few posts on Facebook recently about how people can go to the gym without sharing it everywhere….. Well yes. That’s true and all, but some people use social media as a motivation, they may be in a group workout plan where sharing is part of their thing. Or they may, like me, just be really fucking fed up of giving up. So to those people who post passive aggressive pictures about sharing fitness acolishments on social media, kindly shut up? Perhaps your are not happy with yourself in some way and that’s making you lash out. I’m sorry my ambition to change has you reaching some shitty part of the Internet to try and put me down. NO MORE PEOPLE.

I smashed a huge goal this past Sunday, on international woman’s day. What did you do? Were you a badass mum showing the world how you created a tiny human? Were you a superwoman type person showing how creative you were? Or were you sat on the sofa pinning shite picture from Pinterest on Facebook because you think that bullying and negative thoughts should be the main focus of your Facebook feed? Hmm?

Stop the bullshit people, work for yourself, you don’t have to go to the gym to be awesome, getting up and outside, finishing a to-do list, sorting out a wardrobe, learning a new skill…. All these things make for a more positive outlook and positive presence on a ever negative online environment.

That’s why I’m FINALLY saying “I Did That” I did what I set out to do and in my mind smashed it. It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t easy and I cried like a little girl when I finished it, but I S M A S H E D it. And I am so proud of myself.10 weeks ago I couldn’t run for an hour, and I just ran for 3. 

I Did That….. I finally did that!!
