It seems to be time for a fresh start. This blog has been too quiet for too long. And now I'm embarking on a new, exciting and rather scary journey, which makes me think I should maybe journal and document it here and thereby hold myself accountable! Well, I'm going to give it a right good go at least!!!
So, my new journey will be training for my first ever marathon! I am both hugely excited and utterly terrified! I have signed up for the Loch Ness Marathon at the end of September, and training is due to start a week on Monday. BUT... I have gone and injured myself, strained my hamstring... And I haven't run in nearly two weeks, and my leg hurts. I have had sports massage, I will go and see a podiatrist, I have joined a new gym, I'm applying ice packs daily and the foam roller is my new best friend.
Today, I decided, is going to be the start of my journey. Not a week on Monday, or two weeks on Monday, whenever I start running again, but today, when I went to the gym for a training programme and had exercises worked out for me to help along my recovery. It's all part of the process. (Plus, it's the first of May, which fits with new beginnings rather neatly :))
I'm also going to try and play along with Fat Mum Slim's Photo-A-Day Challenge, to help document and share my journey. Today's prompt:
Begins with J... - you guessed: JOURNEY ;-)
So here's to new beginnings, and exciting journeys. And probably some of the good old crafty stuff thrown in for good measure ;-)
