Meeting No.37 – Running

Cover Star: Dave McGuire

A few weeks ago I tried walking up Table Mountain with my cousins. After half an hour of walking straight up, my legs were shaking “How much more of this is there?” “About another 2 hours”…..so I took the walk of shame back down, got in the cable car and met them at the top. ‘That’s it,’ I thought – ‘I need to get fit’. So I started on the couch to 5k programme and found it really tough to begin with, but after 5 weeks – I’m up to 3x 5mins runs through the woods next to our house and really enjoying it. I think the first week was particularly hard because I didn’t realise you could have your music on too whilst the nice lady was encouraging you to keep going “You’ve only got 30 seconds of running left – keep going!”. As soon as I had music in my ears, running was a lot easier…..which lead to tonights theme. John has done marathons previously (singing along to British Sea Power ‘Easy, Easy’ at the 14 mile mark), Jez has successfully done couch to 5k and continues to run 3x weekly, Simon prefers his bike with 80miles just a stroll in the park for him, Matt is a physio and we know how rediculously fit they are, and Roger…..he gets to walk the dog. Baked Camembert and Springbok biltong were amongst the menu delights tonight with lashings of beer and inane banter…..always a pleasure…..
