A couple of weeks ago I was feeling very down about my health and weight. I mentioned this to a student who said “Well, why don’t you go swimming, running or zumba (whatever the hell that is)?”. I was about to respond negatively, when I realised that I used to go running, completed two half marathons, and whisper it, enjoyed it (or rather enjoyed having done it).
Last weekend I bought my first running shoes in 11 years.
I downloaded the NHS ‘Coach to 5K’ podcast, and I’m now a week and a bit in. I feel very embarrassed when anyone I know sees me, but what the hell….
