..and the rest


I’ve been resting.  Level 1 all the way.  Hum drum.  Actually anxious about hitting Level 2, as if it might destroy me.  Then I sustained a knee injury, through sitting awkwardly at home, rather than through running.  In fact – it felt better running than resting, but I thought to mention it to Stu and he suggested trying to run a little quicker.

It did the trick.  I seem to have avoided the workload that was placed so firmly upon my knee, relying once again on some of the stronger muscles while pushing with more force. I’ve regained my speed.  I feel better for it.  The knee has calmed right down.

Truth be known, this morning’s run to work was a little stupid, as I reached Level 4 for a spell, but hey – I WAS RUNNING!

So, having just withdrawn from the weekend’s Hathersage Hurtle race for my lack of training and recent cold/chest infection, I still feel as if there’s some light at the end of the tunnel.

I feel as if I’ve done nothing but struggle for so long, the issues might include a touch of psychological trouble, believing that I have more of a problem than might really be the case.

Time to start visualising, positive thinking, running to enjoy it once again and separating the real issues from the phantoms.  Leaving the ‘baggage’ at the door, so to speak.

Sheffield Round Run is surely looking more promising as a result.

Onward and upward.  But let’s not get carried away.

Watch this space for more positivity in the near future….
