I’ve been ignoring the fatness for far too long, hoping it would go away on its own, but of course it has not. The clothes are getting tighter and I’m becoming increasingly displeased with myself.
So, on Saturday I decided it was time to take serious action.
I’m going to start running regularly.
Even longer-time readers will know that, back in the day, I was really quite fit and attended the gym a minimum of 4 times a week and the majority of that time was spent pounding the treadmill. Unfortunately, what with various health issues &etc, it has been at least a year since I’ve done anything remotely physical.
So I ran on Saturday (intervals, because the fitness? she is low) … and it was completely exhausting.
Today was a little more challenging – come running time, it was absolutely pouring with rain – but I sucked it up and out I went. And I was rewarded with a rainbow (and a rainbow umbrella in the foreground)!
I was also rewarded with impossibly sore thigh muscles. Walking should be quite the challenge tomorrow.
