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!

Another week gone

Already! They seem to go so fast and last so long… how does that work?

This week’s been fairly average – feeling below par so haven’t been inspired to do a lot, and tired but not sleepy (how does that happen? Lack of iron??), but I went for a waddle on Wed morning (unfortunately running club had to give way to parent-teacher interviews, but it’s all about priorities!) and today will be fun. I have to think that, because there’s nothing else that’s going to drag my ass out of bed and into work other than that.

I need to get back into this properly…
