Not posted for a while but thought it's about time I got things off my chest. I have - up until a few months ago - been doing 3 X 10k runs a week. Then, back in early December, my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, she has had a mastectomy and is undergoing chemo. Runs slowly dwindled to 1 - 2, 5 - 10k runs per week.
Then my wife decides that it's time to call time on our marriage (this not a complete shock - just the timing). Mojo slipping further!
Then, my mother has a major stroke, and gets diagnosed with leukemia, together with several other nasties and is currently residing in hospital.
Then, as if that wasn't enough, 2 of my best friends also diagnosed with cancer!
To top it all off, work has dried up somewhat (self employed)!
It seems that someone up top has got it in for me this year.
Back to running - or not as is the case. I haven't been out for 2 weeks now and my wife is now in hospital as reacting really badly to the chemo (we're staying together until the treatment is done) which has made it near impossible to get out. We have an 11 year old so can't leave her on her own.
The one good thing on the horizon is that my main client is paying for a trip to the Barcelona Grand Prix next week (should I be getting on a plane at a time like this?)
Anyways, sorry to be so depressing but just thought I would air things to you lovely people. I need to start running more regularly again as one of the many benefits is clearing the head and somehow putting things in perspective.
Keep running peeps.
