I was very tempted to put off today's run and run 2 which I did on Thu. My Granny is quite unwell at the minute and at 90yrs old she is wondering why she is still here so it is very sad to see her suffer. Today I was feeling very tired come the end of work & also really sore! I had done a set of balance exercises yesterday afternoon from Aprils issue of Health & Fitness Magazine and as the day went on had an ache in my back that got worse and worse. By the time I got home from work the other half very kindly had a hot water bottle ready to help sooth the pain but when I woke up this morning it felt 10 times worse. I never feel great when I finish work after midnight and start at 10am again, but started trying to psyche myself up for completing week 3.
As I was finishing work I mentioned to my sister who I work with that I was suppose to run and she told me not to bother. Got home to my other half who was going to make dinner so I said I was supposed to go for a run while he was doing that and he said I should leave it to another night. I had convinced myself before talking to both of them that I wasn't going to run tonight (I hadn't told them), but after some contemplation I thought where is the encouragement!!!! If they aren't going to push me I really need to do this myself.
Off I set on in the rain and my first run in real darkness since my injury which made me feel very nervous about falling again, but I was fine! The main trouble I had was my trousers wouldn't stay up lol It did me the world of good, as soon as I got in I noticed straight away the tightness in my back was gone and it hasn't hurt since
It got me thinking about my diet also, all my family and close friends know I have been dieting since October but combined I must hear at least twice a day 'you have to give yourself a treat every now and then' - if I gave in to that every time I'm sure I would have gained weight on my diet
I could go on but don't want to rant any more than I have already!
On to week 4 next!!! At least I probably wouldn't be saying now that if I wasn't discouraged in the first place...
