My first time back at the gym since Covid, was intervals (AKA cardio hardio) and it was tough, not just because of Covid but my general fitness as well but I did it & that’s all I’m focusing on at the moment.
After the gym I headed to get some groceries, the list was fairly long but I had to keep remembering that I’m away next weekend & the following week & not to buy too much. I was also quite tight on time as had planned to meet a friend at 9.30am for coffee & needed to get home, put the food in the fridge & get to our meeting place.
Had a great catch-up with a friend who I’ve not seen for a couple of months, we speak regularly through WhatsApp and Instagram but not the same as being with someone physically.
Got home & decided to go for a quick run, just to see how my knee held up, only a 400m loop around the roads near my house but enough to see how it felt and thankfully there was no pain in my knee at all, however, my heels on both feet were quite sore so will have to ease back into it gently as I couldn’t run the full 400m straight out, think I did about 200m, walked a bit & ran the rest, it’s a start so will now slowly build it up.
The rest of the day I had planned to do housework but I just felt like I needed to chill, so that’s what I’ve done, have done a few small jobs.
Hallelujah, I’ve sorted my hotel for my trip! It’s double what I originally paid but I’ve been assured by booking.com that I will get the difference back & they’ve already refunded me the original booking costs.
This evening, I’ve been watching the World Athletics Championships, I love watching any sport, especially big events like this as I’m just in awe of the amazing athleticism of the competitors & the fact it’s completely unpredictable. As well as aspiring to be that fit & healthy, I will get there one day!
