What a year! Who’d have thought that 2020 would turn out as it has. Just a few short words sum it up for me
- Face masks
- Not enough running
Consistent running hasn’t been easy for me in recent years due to a combination of injury, real world pressures and a good dollop of laziness. However, early Lockdown did reignite a love for walking but the
travel restrictions meant that I was initially confined to 2km from home which was a bit limiting.. my world really expanded when this was later relaxed to 5km. 🤣 I think I’ve now walked all the possible streets within this zone!
As summer came lockdown lifted and the endless zoom table quiz circuit faded. So too did my desire for a daily walk and laziness took over once more 😉
Although I was being lazy, I did try to go for the odd run to slow the middle age spread. I have a local 4.5mile route which has a bit of variety and, for now, that distance seems to be my limit. So I’m trying to get into a routine of running (slowly) that loop a couple of times a week, generally over the weekend. I can’t say my fitness is improving yet but I haven’t been getting injured which is a plus!
Over the next few weeks, in preparation for the next lockdown, my plan is to try to introduce some more runs during the week and hopefully redevelop a healthy running habit.
I also discovered that my Garmin can give a nice overview of how bad my running is at the moment. Green is bad btw!
‘till next time. Stay safe ...
