Did it! But ouch!

Today was my first run since I went on holiday. I packed my gear but it was soooo hot I decided that swimming and snorkelling would be adequate replacement exercise. I was wrong.

I began today telling myself that I would "listen to my body" and slow down if I needed to. I forgot about my inner competitive ego. I didn't slow down. I ran 5k as fast as I ever have. And now, I am sore, stiff and probably sofa bound for the rest of the day.

Oh we'll, on the bright side, I DID IT!

WOW good for you. Now that you are on holiday maybe treat yourself to a massage to help with the aches and pains? :)


Thanks Rita, I'm home now but not back at work yet so a massage sounds like a great idea. : )
