Saturday 15 September 2012: Not Too Bad
Actually to be honest, bloody good!
I went out on a run 3 days ago and just couldn't do it. It seemed everything was against me. Sore knee, all clogged up for breathing and a bad foot. Did 4.2 miles (of which over a mile and a half was walking home)(a problem you don't incur if you drive everywhere).
All day i've had a bad foot and been taking anti inflams and pain killers. I honestly had no plan on running but then got to the time i'd usually go out and no word of a lie just really felt the urge. It's sickening! It makes me feel sick! The urge to run? seriously i'm not even lying! Who wants to actually run? you (I) weirdos!
So bad foot I thought maybe just jog a mile or two but within 3 minutes I didn't feel any pain so just ran.
The first runs I did weren't really very runny, It's fair to say I didn't stop and stayed at a steady pace but my legs literally fell in front of each other in a rhythm but very clumsily. They had no pulling or pushing to them they just fell forward repeatedly.
Today I could feel them propel me. A pulling and pushing from the feet and more like a run than a jog. Don't get me wrong, i'm in no doubt this isn't a fast time but it certainly felt more positive than previous runs... Just hope my foots ok tomorrow lol.
Have to jump back a few blips now to see what stupid target time i'd set myself and see if it looks anywhere near achievable.
Photo might change as its a long day ahead still. Have a good one.
