On Monday I start a 10 week running regime that my friend Jo sends me. By the end of week 10 I will be able to run for 30 minutes without stopping.
On Wednesday I am feeling great. My second walk/run and I am already building up longer running times. I will be fit and lean. I will bounce with energy.
On Thursday I have an argument with my boyfriend. Then I accidentally slam a door onto my left foot. Toes are strange and still for a while and then come up blue and bruised and twisted.
I accept this is my body's way of telling me that late afternoons in Autumn are for napping, not for running.
