The return

Some of you may know that I have been laid low recently and havent been able to run. Most frustrating.

Well today, for the first time in 5 weeks I wanted to run. Sure I have missed it and been uneasy and tetchy without it but until today, I havent felt physically able.

Today was different.

I got out in the sunshine and did a gentle 2k run. I found it hard going, my breath was a bit laboured, my legs were heavy, I had that taaste of iron in my mouth and pretty much felt as week as a kitten.


A long road lies ahead before I am fully back but by God it looks like a happier road now.

Aint running great :D
