I don't know if anyone else ever got the feeling that running every other day as recommended was becoming a bit of a treadmill (excuse the pun) . I certainly had days (especially wet ones)where I told people 'I HAVE to run today' instead of 'I WANT to run today'. Anyway, thanks to my on-line PT I now have some variety to keep my interest up. I now only do one long 'proper' run a week which I really look forward to. On other days I cycle, do hill work, swim or do an indoor lunge, squat and stretch routine (which looks as attractive as it sounds and is strictly a 'no observers' activity) . The aim is to strengthen my pathetically weak 'glutes and quads' so that my running speed improves and I have less risk of injury. But the bonus is that I no longer have days of finding exercise a boring duty. I have even enrolled for swimming lessons in the hope that I can finally master the front crawl (better for the g and q's than breast stroke apparently) . My only worry is that certain 'friends' are looking at me in a way that suggests they think I may soon be certified. Never mind, my family is supportive, if slightly bemused!
