Horror of horrors its been the better part of a year since I ran.
Enough is enough!
No more toxic thyroid holding me back – now just unfit and slightly softer around the edges from not running nearly 12 months.
How bad could it be to get back on the road?
Off I went for my first jog – just 3km to see how I felt. HAVE MERCY! What had I done
to myself. That evening, I couldn’t walk. I could barely breathe. Is it possible to be this unfit even with walking 5km most days and cycling in between. Clearly, YES!
R&R for a couple of days, a serious chat with myself and I was back out there. Still only 3km but walking 200m then jogging 300m for the 3km course. Much better. I am in week two now and already I am feeling better for it. Still unfit and podgy but mentally in a much happier space.
Hopefully by the holidays I will be bouncing around like an energiser bunny again , less podgy and looking forward to being on track with my 5km daily run.
Have you too fallen off the proverbial wagon?
