I've had quite the weekend. Lovely weather on Saturday and Sunday had me out for a walk and sitting in the sun on the Saturday and on Sunday, I drove through to see my parents, a 45 minute drive each way. Spent 6 hours there, sitting in the sun and chatting.
Of course the weather now is crap!
Today was my first physio session. I have a series of 45 minute sessions, once a week and although I managed the session, I struggled as the time passed. At the time my eyes were feeling so heavy, despite plenty of sleep the night before! Legs went super weak too.
I have since recovered somewhat, but am looking forwards to my bedtime! While i'm getting much better, today showed me this is still close to the start of my journey with regards to fitness.
The only time i've felt like this was when I climbed a mountain, with a 15kg back pack, and came back down the same day. That took me 12 hours and included 6 hours of driving to the lakes!
Let that sink in and put it into perspective. It took over 12 hours of extreme exertion to exhaust me prior to all this happening.
Now around 1 hour does the same!
I feel a tiny bit breathless, but often do after exertion. Its odd, as Sats are always 97-100, yet I get this feeling. It passes though and I've been pottering about the house since dinner time a few hours go and my legs feel a little recovered. My lungs have that burning sensation, again, its mild and fairly common with those recovering from covid pneumonia.
I have such a long journey back to fitness.
However, I did it. I also know I can visit friends now if i'm careful and rest plenty.
This is going to be tough, but nothing in life is that easy.
Just as the weather will pick up soon, so will I.
I'm going to beat this and i'm going to climb another mountain.
