Maybe Tomorrow…

OK, so I didn’t quite make it for Juneathon, but I have been doing something.  Honest!

As some of you will remember this whole plodding lark started early last year when I was feeling very blobby and extremely unfit, and so I decided that maybe taking to the streets was a good idea.  Then I realised that taking to the streets could be misinterpreted so decided to start a plodding plan with the hope of doing a 10k.  I failed.  Rather, my back failed me. 

Just a few short weeks before raceday, I was happily doing some gardening when the elastic band in my back broke and I had to spend one week lying on the floor followed by several weeks of Osteopathy. 

By the time I was better, it was a gazillion degrees outside, so there was no-way I was going out plodding!  Also I was extremely busy at work working up to 18hrs a day 7 days a week, and quite frankly I was bloomin’ knackered.  So the plodding stopped. 

Fast forward to December ’09 when the job from hell ended and I was too bloomin’ knackered to leave the house for nearly a month, so the plodding still did not return to my life.  I kept waking up and looking at the trainers laying almost forgotten and dusty in the corner of my room and thinking, maybe tomorrow, but I just couldn’t manage it.  Then, just to add insult to laziness, I became ill and wasn’t allowed to exercise (under doctors orders) for three months, so once again returned to being the blobby person I was at the start of ’09!

However, light was at the end of the tunnel.  In May, I got the all clear to start moving my now rather large blobby body again, and after a glass of wine with another blobby friend, an upgrade to an iPhone, a download of one of the Couch to 5k plans, and a bit of pop music, the plodding began again.  Yay!

I didn’t take part in Juneathon as I wanted to ease myself back into this exercise lark quite gently, (congrats to all that did though!) and can now happily confirm that we have managed to plod around our local park at least three times a week, since then.  Sometimes it’s just been a ploddy walk, but others I’ve actually managed to plod propper.

It’s a slow process, but I’ll get there.  Although I’m not entering myself for any competitions or proper runs for a while…  don’t want to tempt fate too much!

So, there we are.  All up to date.  The BlobbyJogger returns – albeit one step at a time!

Until the next time
