I'm at the tail end of a lurgy which has stopped me running for 10 days and is turning me into a very unpleasant person😡 I am really missing my exercise and hubby is not helping as he seems to be terrified that I will overdo things and drop dead. If he had his way I would never run again. Well he's not fit at the moment and there was no way I was not going for a walk in the winter sun today. And a long one at that. So I told him where I was going and set off - fully planning to do a bit of light jogging for short distances just to see how things go. I was aiming for one of the many lakes round here, where I haven't been for about a year, a round trip of about 13k (good to know if I ever get that far running!). It was beautiful, the sun was shining, the lake was still frozen even though most of the snow has gone. I plonked myself down on the grass at the edge of the ice with a big grin on my face and let the sun warm my face. And I got my sneaky little runs in, 4x 1k I ran in total. Not non-stop, very slow, but not too tiring - despite wearing walking boots and being kitted out for a hike rather than a run. It wasn't very sensible, but it did me a lot of good and I feel so much better for it. I hope to get back properly this week.
