A few weeks after graduating in March, I suffered a severe return the mental health problems that have dogged my adult life. The result was that I didn't run for 9 weeks.
So, two weeks ago I decided that it was time I got off my arse (which was beginning to form a close and meaningful relationship with my sofa) and get back out there.
I'm amazed that after only 5 runs, today I ran for 30 minutes non-stop for the first time since March.
During my episode of unhingedness, I lost my appetite and lost 9kg. I'm still counted at overweight, but I was surprised at the difference that dragging around 11% less body can make!
I'm still incredibly slow, only having covered 2.25 miles in 30 minutes, but I don't really care at this point. I'm just glad to be back
