Back in the groove

Starting today. I ran. Ish. More like ‘waddled with less grace than a goose’, but at least I went. It’s a good start, and I feel better just for having done it. With a bit of luck, the ickky fat feeling will go away very soon, and I shall be able to run the upcoming 12K City to Surf race in a few weeks (my very first entry!) without making too much of a dork of myself, before having to go away again for another 6 weeks of little excercise and too much food.

I think I’ll do things differently next time, like eating cos I have to, not because I’m worried the next meal may never turn up. I shall take some emergency supplies, and learn to relax about it all.

I was planning on going for another trot this afternoon, but it’s still a little hot out there for my liking (currently 31 degrees at half past 4), so I’ll see how I feel in another hour or so. I am on duty tomorrow, so no PT for me. I did get myself some little sparring gloves, so I’m going to try them out on Tuesday at lunchtime, come hell or bloody high water!

Am still alive, and feeling much improved after a week of antibiotics… I went and got another weeks worth just in case, and hopefully will feel back to normal (sure…) in another week. Today I even managed PT, which was a warm up jog, a circuit class for the best part of an hour, and a jog back. I just measured the warm up and cool down jogs… 1.5k and 1k respectively. No wonder it took me so long to stop sweating afterwards!

I’m getting more impressed with my keeping up in a group session now – I can actually do it! That is of course provided they’re not going TOO damn fast. Tomorrow is squash in the morning, and I’m hoping to do boxing at lunch. And it’s also the day that the pilates class is supposed to be starting. I’ll see how I feel after work, I so don’t like getting sweaty with strangers I have nothing in common with. Such a prude…
