Today has been a great day, started off at intervals where there was running programmed into the workout, over the last year or so I’ve not done very much running at all, I’ve got a dodgy knee that plays up sometimes and running is just painful to do so I’ve been hesitant to run and then as my fitness decreased then I did try running I just found it so hard!! So usually I would ask to do the alternative movement if running came up in the workout, not today I was determined to give it a go, it wasn’t fast and it wasn’t pretty but I did manage to do it so that made me a little teary on the drive home and I’m so proud of myself for doing it as well as acknowledging that I’ve got back into the groove with exercise despite having a lot of other things going on and not letting them get in the way.
After the gym, I got home quick shower and breakfast then a work meeting and some nutritional work.
I met up with a friend at a local nature park for a walk and talk session, we’ve not seen each other since 2019 mainly due to Covid, we’ve chatted online in that time but nothing beats being in the company of someone and having a good old chat, once we did a walk we did have coffee and cake in the cafe which was delicious. And we were lucky with the weather as it was nice and sunny, not too windy either.
Once home after the walk, it was more work and then food, TV and now blog and bed!
Today I’m really thankful for friends and my life, some areas could be better but overall I feel like it’s going in the right direction and I just need to keep my eye on the prize and stay focused!!
