Well I was literally climbing the walls this morning thinking what can I do ... my chest was feeling a bit better and I felt the urge to run. I decided to look at joining the gym for a month and even if I wasn't able to use the treadmill I could perhaps use the bikes or something else. Found one not too far away and reasonably cheap compared to some of the others, and no direct debit needed. As I am only here for another month before flying back to Egypt I don't want a commitment. So off I went, on arrival I knew that it was everything I hate about most gyms: big, noisy, non-smiley, funky, shiny, trendy!! Means to an end however, I endured a tour with a very nice girl who had a ridiculous amount of piercings and was using lots of fitness vocab that I didn't understand. Finally I joined and got on a treadmill, trying to hide in the corner of a bright open space is quite difficult. Anyway, the result was, apart from a slight machine malfunction, I completed Week 9 Run 2!!! So I reckon as long as I am careful, ensure my rest days, don't go mad, I can still do this, albeit not outside. It's looking like surgery will be next Friday, all being well I am going to finish this bloody programme on Sunday! Keep meaning to post pic of my new shoes. Not as exciting or girly as I wanted, but they do the job ...
