I ran this morning for the first time for 6 whole weeks. It hasn't been a good time. First I had a horrible
virus I just couldn't throw off despite taking every natural and unnatural remedy in the book. Thn, just as I was beginning to feel better my new four week old grandson took ill and by the time we got him to hospital (an hour's drive)was in hypovolaemic shock with a pulse rate of 212 bpm. It took them two hours to stabilise him and another four days on IV fluids to get him well enough for to come home. Little time for running in that scenario... Finally today I dragged myself out and did Week one Run One all over again. I thought I would have lost all my fitness but didn't find it too hard to may step up to week 2 the day after tomorrow. Not a good time, but it felt sp good to strap on my shoes again!
