Well it’s been a long time since my last blog and I thought I should update you on how things are going. I have managed to keep running for 30 mins twice a week, that is until my last run on Christmas Eve. Since then I have been plagued with my recurrent sore knee and a bad back. This has coincided with my big birthday that I had , when I turned 50 on the 29th Dec. So although I am feeling my age at minute,I’m going to work on recovering and then will get back into it. I really want to use my new Fitbit that my husband bought me for my birthday. Hopefully I will be back to normal soon.
Today I woke up and really did not want to get out of bed. The days have been so dark and dreary lately, I miss the sunshine. I had an intense urge to stay under the duvet all day. I did eventually drag myself out of bed as I needed to keep my back moving to aid it’s recovery.
As the morning wore on I have engrossed myself in household chores, stopping occasionally to look at the rain. Where is the sunshine? When will it stop?
Then I received a photograph from my Daughter-in-law of my little baby Grandson enjoying his walk in the park despite the rain. There is my sunshine, right there in his little cheeky smile and bright big eyes. In that little bundle of absolute joy is my saviour through these winter blues. Now the rain doesn’t seem so bad. Now I am more determined to run.
