Some of you if you have seen Facebook may know that I managed a run that may not have happened yesterday. It was almost one of those ones that doesn't happen due to travelling/work or other. I made myself get out though, I knew I'd feel better as it had been a long week of working and fighting a cold. I did feel better and at points I even pushed my speed so I can get a little more distance in- according to map my walk my pace was 8:30 min/km and I did 4.86 km... I achieved that goal right?
It was a slightly daft run though as I did it as it was getting dark and it was quite shadowy and I don't know about non shadowy
routes around me, but I am alive to tell the tale!
Does anyone else's legs feel heavy the day after a full run?
This morning I also wanted to share something. This time last year I was making even more great use of our NHS. After a series of tests I was diagnosed with a heart condition called Wolff-Parkinson-White, it's an abnormal heart beat and when I tried to run or exert myself it would kick in even more and after not a lot of time I would get breathless and probably beetroot faced like we do after about 20 mins of running! Today is the day that I was told my quality of life would improve and it has, I spent the first few months after my procedure taking it easy and analysing and building my fitness and then in July I downloaded these podcasts and I can now run for 30 mins!!!
I like to call myself an NHS marvel, or one of them!
(The next post of similar nature will be in November, it's when I had the procedure!)
