Some people have or get the winter-blues, I as it happened, got the summer-blues!!!
Summer is just not my favourite time of the year. Yes, it might rain a little less, the sun is out and longer BUT it is way too warm for me!
I just can’t cope with the heat! “Heat” here in the north of England starts with 18C end usually ends with around 25C!
My, my, I sound like an old granny, but it is true. The warmer it gets, the less I want to exercise. I just can’t be bothered. I can’t get my behind up and out of the door!
Now that summer is over, the temperatures are at around 14C or less, my running-mojo has returned! Yeah!!!
It is crisp outside, the leaves are falling, the light is warmer, it is windy constantly…. yes, it might be a bit more wet and boggy, but that is OK!
I am ready to go running!!!
Unfortunately after a marathon last weekend (DT40 in Leyburn, Yorkshire Dales), I am suffering from what you call a “runners knee”!
Don’t ask me how that happened! I was a bit stiff the day after but another day later it hurt so much that I could do nothing but limp to the doctor.
“Rest it”, she said….”for 4 – 6 weeks”, she said.
After a week of limping around, 1000 painkillers later, it doesn’t hurt so much anymore when I walk, sit or sleep.
Until I am able to run again, I have to survive of lettuce just to make sure, I don’t put extra pounds on.
Ha, me the little bunny…with useless legs….
But I can see light at the end of the tunnel!
Have a great one, everyone!
