first run in melbourne!  
i did it! i went for a run today! :)

i only lasted 15 minutes, plus another 15 minutes of brisk walking beforehand and another 5 minutes of warm-down walking afterwards. also remembered the warm-up and warm-down moves that the bestfriend taught me, so i was a good girl and did all of that.

the hair gets extremely knotted afterwards though. i spent about 5 minutes disentangling it. need to figure out a different way of tying it without stressing or curling it too much.

i'm feeling excellent. but i hope i will be able to walk tomorrow!

My inspiration! :D

Will probably start the routine in winter - too hot to contemplate even walking.

my landlord runs at 5:30am! @.@

5.30am sounds alright during summer ;)

Our neighbourhood isn't exactly safe for night wanderings unfortunately so I'm going to start the morning walk/run thingee when it gets cooler.

Yeah, you have lovely hair so hope you find a good way to take care of it :) -- other than not going for any more runs, of course! Maybe a quick braid/plait/whatchamacallit?

hmmm... i don't braid my hair because i don't like having curls and kinks. but i guess i have to decide which is worse - having curls, or hair breakage from knots. :|
(Anonymous) on March 10th, 2007 03:14 pm (UTC)
Oh, will a half-hour braid do that? Didn't realise (but what do I know). But still, breakage is worse than temporary curls, isn't it?
JV: knottydrag0nette on March 11th, 2007 04:15 am (UTC)
my hair is very prone to curls. i go to great lengths (haw haw) to keep it straight - rebonding, treatments, blowdrying, conditioners, whathaveyouse. :)

yes, breakage is worse. on the other hand, i suspect my hair may be too slippery to maintain a braid... will give it a shot during the week!
