OK, I will be criticised and moaned at, and I can understand that, but the rewards have paid out so much more than any pain.
Yesterday morning I went on my run - nothing spectacular, just a repeat of W2R1 instead of moving on. I didn't do W3R1 for a very good reason - my wife. She has been feeling a little bit self aware of her increased weight over lockdown, and she was wanting to start running, but not where I go, or when I do. Too many people later in the day, and she didn't want to go early in the day either, so we decided to do open-moorland running yesterday PM for her W1R1. It was SPECTACULAR! Exceptionally wet and sticky underfoot with so many possible ankle twisters and places to fall, but neither of us did. She got back to the car positively zinging, as did I. Izzie dog loved the yomp too, but she absolutely hates going back to the car after a walk, so our warm-down walk was at a snails pace.
No runs today, but tomorrow I may well move on to my W3R1 as I seem to have absolutely no aches or pains whatsoever, which is a major surprise and a huge bonus.
Yes, I WILL be careful and listen to this ancient bod, but so far - so good.
As for 'er indoors... well, she is up and about as normal with no aching legs. Maybe the secret is trail running?!!!!
