Today I woke up to this
The day proved to be a Shepherd’s Delight not a warning. The sun shone and it certainly made me feel alive.
Time to get out of this pit of indolence and get fit again. I used to run. Nothing serious since that London Marathon more than ten years ago, but I enjoyed the odd five miles in the Welsh lanes and I had a two and a half mile flattish loop that I used when I was being lazy. What has put me off has been my dry mouth. I find it hard to breath through my mouth as everything dries up. So the first stop was the rower and a mouthful of chewing gum. I set the resistance to five, which is what I used to row 5k with on a rainy day, and tried a kilometre to start with. Not bad! Yes, it was hard to maintain a decent speed but I got there with only minor discomfort. Running shoes soon. Watch this space.
