What's happened to my body? It's not playing ball at all. I'm on my second cold in two weeks and now my knee and ankle have given up! I was quite enjoying the training too!
We've been taking it in turns (someone has to listen out for the kids!) running around our block. It takes us around two minutes, so whilst I set off, Robin can recover and vice versa. It's our version of interval training and I find it more manageable than doing a huge run.
I've been enjoying it too. Each time it gets a little easier and I feel I recover quicker as well.
I've never really seen the point in running. Always thought it was a sport without any outcome - just boring running. Although as a child I was never sporty, I was a dancer. But when I'm running now and I imagine being chased by a pack of zombies - I see the point! And even if I was being chased by a rapist or mugger (take your pick), I wouldn't have got far at all. So I now see the point! I also feel a lot better (barring the knee, ankle and cold!). Breathing seems easier and my lungs feel big and airy!
A couple of days off for me and then I hope I'll be back in the training way again! I can't give up - it's just not in my nature!
