It’s spring out there in case you haven’t noticed – get out there and walk – or run – or tidy the garden – but get out there!
I’ve been somewhat “down in the dumps” as I have not been able to run very much with my sore hip – I keep thinking it’s getting better – and then I run again and it hurts again…….. And I still want to have a go at my 10 remaining half marathons…………………
So I had no choice but take drastic action and I’ve joined the gym! I can use the cross-trainer, the bike and the swimming pool to my heart’s content – without pain – it just seems to be running that upsets things. At least I can keep fit – but I do miss running outdoors.
So yesterday was the first run for a week – and I really needed to try out my hip as my next half is only 7 days away. So eight miles planned – and the good news is – eight miles done! Some minor discomfort and a bit stiff afterwards but massive improvement so I’m on the mend! And it is just so good to be out there in the light and the spring weather. I saw daffodils, snowdrops, violets and primroses. There were robins bobbing about and I saw a swan in flight. The sun was shining (and it still is). The days are getting longer. All is well…….
Running track for the week – so sad that they are splitting up – “We are the Battery Human” by Stornaway – because we were born to be Free Range!
