This morning I set out on my run. I turned back not long after leaving the front door. But only to get my rainjacket. Just as well as it rained very gently all the way round. I decided to just follow what my body was telling me.
At the halfway point I decided to take a different route home. This meant a long climb up to the highest point around here. But the reward was a longer steeper descent to home.
Keeping it nice and steady I managed the climb. After the descent I added a couple of extra loops and ended up going a little further than I did last week. When I finished there was plenty left in the tank.
When I came home I did something which I haven't done for years. I weighed myself. The scales confirmed what my waistband has been telling me for some time. Now that I am running regularly I am going to lose weight. I am going to put the things I have learned which got me through this programme to work on losing weight. I can do this.
