You know I was all optimistic on Sunday. Fah to yet another “New Start” post, I thought. I’ll go for a run and start tracking on Monday and write about that. And lo that is what has come to pass!
So I went for a run. That was nice. No really it was. I covered nearly 10k in 1:16. Not bad for me. I had a look at my previous 10k times and it’s pretty good. This time last year my 10k time was 1:33.
Of course, things are not all sunshine and roses. I have injured my foot. I tripped over a curb a couple of weeks ago (sober! even more embarrassing!) and I thought it was better but apparently not. I’m not sure if it’s worth going to the doctors. I’ll rest it up for a couple of days and see what happens. I suspect that wearing nothing but the same old pair of Converse for the last three months hasn’t been helping my feet either. And I need a new pair of running shoes. I have a plan. The plan is to rest my feet for the next few days and use the time wisely to search the internet for new shoes.
I am seriously miffed about my foot. There is no two ways about it. If I run I am happier, I eat better, I am more organised. I must, must try to get round this. The entire endeavor should not be abandoned just because one part isn’t going well.
