I can run, I can run, I can run, I ran

Those of you paying attention will not doubt notice that my 4 more sleep blog should be renamed 3 more sleeps as having got the all clear from the optician could not wait another night, so whilst madam was swimming I ran.

The news from the optician was all good, but still room for improvement which fingers crossed will occur over the next 4 months. When asked if I could run she said yes but nothing too strenuous (no danger there I thought).

I got to wear my new boulder holder and try our my new insoles to stop the rolling of the foot all very exciting. I must admit it felt good. The sports bra fit like a glove and so comfy. Could not notice the insoles but this is good and probably due to walking at least 15 miles this past week with them in. The rain came and I laughed it, ‘you cant bother me now, I told it, rain as much as you like you can only make me wet and I will dry. No longer can you prevent me seeing where I am going, no longer will you make me wear a baseball cap, no longer will you make me take my glasses off, hah rain you don’t bother me anymore, rain,  Mr rain, just rain!’

Amazing run with little effort managed 2 miles in under 10 minute miles, could so have kept going but already 1 mile longer that the phsyio suggested but 1 mile is such a little distance to run after 4 weeks. So glad I’m back off to ice knee after icing birthday cake!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    Hey Sharon! You are shocked about my change of decision and I was shocked when I just caught up on your last 5 blog updates (sorry it has been a while!)! That is amazing to hear about your eyes and I am so happy for you that you can run again. Trust me when I say I know what you mean about injuries as I had my fair share of them during university soccer and I LOATHED not being able to play or do anything and just had to rest!
    I hope Katelyn’s birthday went well! She is almost in the double digits!
    Anyways, hope things continue to keep well!
    P.S. Maybe you should change the name of your blog as your 31 days of running are now done- just a suggestion!
