Don’t go for a run for 3 weeks and BAM you are back to being a lump whose body says forget it, I am not going to do this! 😦 Needless to say a lot more cycling has been happening with not much running.
Then, new shoes. We got lucky with a pair of Asics which were R600 (± USD $42.50) cheaper purely because they are in last years colours! No improvement to the shoe, just a change in colour.
It is taking a while getting used to these runners too; the balls of my feet burn like they are on fire and my toes get pins and needles so not much fun when I am already battling to breathe, and still trying to enjoy my run.
On the upside, I have started weight training with Pete. Its what us “getting older” folk are meant to do I believe. Got to keep the muscle tone, or in my case, built it. 😀
Here’s to keeping it all up over the holidays!
