So here is the thing.
I graduated about 5 or 6 weeks ago and was managing my 2-3 times a week 5km and was even pushing for 6km. All was good.
And then after lots of tiring business travel and being caught in a torrential downpour the old immune system decided it wanted some attention and so decided to hit me with bronchitis. Pills and more pills and penicillin and all sorts. My exercise routine was a hacking coughing fit every 20 minutes or so.
I managed to get out once and felt a lot better even though it was just a short trundle and this week, despite the cough being not a lot better I have been on business travel in the UK. I made sure that I had packed my running shoes and shorts and top but Monday it didnt happen, Tuesday by the time I finished work it was too late and today I had meetings then a flight down to London.
But there is a gym in teh hotel so I was determined and off I went.
And just reminded myself why I hate treadmills. My balance isnt always the greatest so what with concentrating on balance, people either side of me that are each running at different paces, a bloody huge clock in front of me reminding me it is only 30 seconds since I last looked at it and my beetroot sweating face in the mirror in front of me it was 3km at a steady pace and that was it.
How some of you people are doing the entire C25K on a treadmill I dont know. I salute you !!
Fly home late tomorrow night and I dont care if it is around -2C now in the mornings at home. I need to be back in the fields and forests.
