I'd like to do something that would help me with a bit of core strength as well as flexibility, as I'm starting to get a bit stiff and awkward in my movements.

I was thinking along the lines of yoga or pilates but I'm not really sure what the differences are. Does anyone here know from experience? I'm not against mindfulness or meditation by any means but i'm more interested in the physical side than the spiritual aspect.

Pilates is a bit more up tempo I think. You can definitely find yoga practioners that are less 'spiritual' though (and if you're able to self-motivate with videos etc, plenty of people on youtube)

Pilates is the older exercise and can be done with specialist equipment called reformers as well as freestyle. The spirituality of Yoga is slightly crowbarred on from an ancient form of meditation, and you don't need to get sucked into that at all.
I do Yoga a couple of times a week for specific neck and shoulder loosening exercises and I use Yoga with Adrienne on YouTube. She's very popular and not too woo-woo

First training run done! Running slower is really strange. But then running faster felt great

Yeah, it always feels way better to be sprinting instead of dying over the line. I hate it when I set off too fast.
