This Blog started out as a record of my efforts to compete in the Gt Eastern Half Marathon 2006. Since then I entered but had to withdraw from Flora London Marathon 2008 due to injury. After having to take months off to recover I am now ready and willing to become a runner again!

There were loads of people about, a few runners and lots of dog walkers. We did our run round the big lake and think next week we should extend it a bit more to take in the nature reserve. It still seems as hard as ever, my lungs just don't seem to be able to cope but I guess it will get easier....

I even pushed the mileage for today's run, doing 3 miles....no big deal I know, but it's a start.
And I have been cycling to work fairly regularly too.

Still really hard, legs not co-operating and taking tiny weeny little steps - come on legs, get that stride going. And as for the breathing, well, least said the better.
Would be oh so much easier if i wasn't carrying all this extra weight. Decided yesterday (once again) that I really really need to shift it so no wine this week until Saturday....watch this space.

It was lovely and peaceful, not many around and a good time to ponder over life.... and plan my next crafting project!

The greatest thing is that it's done and out of the way - next run, Thursday morning.

Today's run was pretty hard, I am still feeling a bit chesty but thought I must get out there. It was quite warm, the sun was out and it really held some warmth in it. So, it's done for today, and I promise myself to get out at least twice during the week.
