For Luck’s Sake!

So excited. I’ve gone and done it. Booked in with Ross to get a gym program. Get back on the road to recovery and fitness. Ultramarathon here I come….

People seem to be taking part and completing Ultras right, left and centre and here I am not yet allowed to run. But it’s in the post. I’ve got a lot of work cut out for me but I like a challenge so that’s a good thing!

Can’t believe I’ve woken up with a stinking cold and sore throat this morning. Thought I’d gotten away with it while everyone else came down with it. Typical. I mean, “for Luck’s sake, why today? I’ve got my fitness plan to figure out down the gym!”.

I’ll still go. At least I can go through the basics. Get a plan. Work out how to actually do the exercises I’m given. Perhaps understand how they’re supposed to work the muscles. It’s a step forward after hundreds back.

Why is it though, when you are determined and make the start that something happens to knock you back. Fitness likes to laugh at us and tempt us in equal measures. Pah!


About klayire

In 2012 I completed my first ever marathon and raised £1843.96 for Alzheimer Scotland (Action on Dementia). Unfortunately I gained an injury. Initially thought to be IT Band I carried on running only to develop further injuries. By the time I crawled through the door of a private physio I had squint and twisted hips (this surely halves my marathon time as I clearly did double the distance with my snake hips!) , achilles tendonitis and shin splints. I was told there would be NO running for at least 5 months. The good news...back to running after 4 months; the not so good I'm straightened out further issues are appearing. But with the promise of being fixable I'm determined to get back to full fitness and run an ultramarathon. Yes Mr Physio, "with that knee!" I did however promise not to do this next week but have this as a future goal as he realised that..."you mean it don't you!" May 2011 Position: 5065. Time: Full marathon: 4 hours 15 mins 07 secs; 10k: 54 mins 06 secs; Half marathon: 1 hour 54 mins 44 secs; 30k – 2 hours 45 mins 30 secs.
