I am so overwhelmed by everyone's support. Thank you so much for all your comments and for continuing to exercise with me for the next week. I'll be honest; I wasn't sure whether to ask for support, because I know that you've all worked so hard on the 5x50, and carrying on could be a week too far! But I am so glad that I did because today was very difficult and without your support I may well have given up!
I think it's the 48 hour thing. You know, when your body aches 48 hours later after strenuous exercise. Well, mine was aching all over this morning following Sundays exercise.
Everything ached, even my wrists! My arms, especially underneath, my shoulders, my chest. My lower back, my thighs. I could go on..!! When I got back this lunchtime I wasn't sure that I would be able to do exercise, because I felt wiped out. I felt that enough was enough.
And then I read everyones comments and was very aware that so many were exercising and supporting me: Well, I couldn't give up now... I had to go out and at least take a walk.
Imagine how I would have felt if I'd given up, after getting this far? Thank goodness I had the company of all you lovely people spurring me on.
So, a 3k walk done. Now I just need to perhaps some abs this evening, or indeed another 2k walk. The fresh air did me good; the wildflowers are still stunning (especially the wild garlic and the bluebells) and I feel happy and relieved that I'm continuing to the end.
Just a week to go and then I can collapse somewhere, quietly, in a heap!!
