I set out for a slow run this morning to see how I do, after just 2.5km done in the last month.
I feel so lucky. I had been saving my holidays in case I got ill, so I could use them on bad days rather than go in to work, and give myself a break, but still have a pay packet at the end of the month.
I've been so well these last few months I got to the end of the year with loads of hols to take. In Dec. Hmm. So on the spur of the moment I decided...Australia!
As I am solar powered this has to be an opportunity to get back to the running. I find it hard in the UK in the dark and cold in Dec.
So first run completed. Sunrise was at 04:30 which I saw because my body clock isn't adjusted. I was out by 05:00 and slowly running round a little park in Brisbane. Really happy to have done 5km. Got back, drank water, stretched, did 12 squats, all while reading this forum coz I find stretching boring. I'll find out tomorrow how my troublesome ankle/foot responds. Plantar is no longer painful but top of foot and ankle are not 100%. If it's the disease then running should help. If it's a sprain it is time it was healed up. Nothing too painful during the run, just a niggle.
Here's hoping! Aiming for 3 runs a week, in between lots of visiting folks. Let's see..
Cello left behind in the U.K. Wouldn't fit in my back pack.
