10 Things that happen when you begin exercising….

… that you might not expect.

  1. You will get very keen on sports clothing and will suddenly be prepared to spend money once dedicated to shoes and handbags on swanky looking gym wear.
  2. You will feel like you are spending half your life washing and drying this swanky looking gym wear.
  3. You learn a whole new terminology and embrace your inner geek. Who knew what over-pronating was until you go for an analysis of your running style?
  4. Some of your other not so healthy habits disappear along the way with very little awareness, as your exercise and improved lifestyle spills out into other parts of your life.
  5. You will get called boring by friends and family who aren’t interested in exercise, when you don’t order a desert, only have the one glass of wine, and so on.
  6. You will sleep like a baby.
  7. You will begin to care about the elusive Personal Best. Quite a bit, actually.
  8. You will realise it is entirely possible to get stuck in a sports bra.
  9. You will be willing to get up in the morning to do strange things like go to a parkrun, even if it means leaving a nice warm bed.
  10. There are few better feelings than realising your body can do something that it couldn’t do just a few weeks ago.
