Well, after graduating just over a week ago I had a friend come to stay which resulted in a bit too much wine and not a lot of exercise. This would not normally be a problem, however we had a long, exhausting day trip (lots of standing around with a heavy bag on) which tired us both out, but somehow it took me 3 days to recover from. I think I must have been fighting of a bug or something, but I literally could not stay awake for more than an hour at a time. So I had to pull out of my roller marathon, which was a bit gutting, but the only sensible option
However, not to be so easily defeated, I went to training on Sunday, had a wee bit of a skate (nothing too strenuous) and have been feeling better since. SO I have started B210K and have been trying to get on my bike for at least 10k every other day as well. Had a slight hiccup with a sore ankle, but a day of RICE whilst I filled out job applications yesterday (grim grim grim) seems to have sorted that (touch wood!).
I REALLY enjoyed the first couple of runs of B210K. I felt faster and covered more ground (over 6K in the 43 minutes of running) It was nice to have "real" music playing, even if it is not entirely to my taste, but I did miss Laura! I think I will make my next run one of the 5k+ podcasts just to get my fix!
How are other recent graduates coping with life beyond Laura? Any plans/goals/strategies for staying motivated? I'd love to hear!
