Very solid month. The ups and downs seem to have stabilised and there's not such a big difference from day to day. At the start of the month things were all over the place, partly warm nights resulted in little sleep, but I think also because my immune system was starting to work better and I had to work out how to adapt. Around the 16th/17th I had a couple of days when I actually felt good which is bizarre. Since then I've been able to work out the finer details and I think I'm in a much better position than I was. Starting the immune support supplement has worked wonders and I think exercise is also playing a big role in my immune system. Obviously I still have variations every day but I haven't had a bad day for a while.
Exercise has been great. I went for 1 or 2 runs without walking last month but this month that's what I've mostly been doing and I'm now ok with it. :) Running still feels really hard and I don't expect it to get easier for a while, but it's nice to be able to go for runs at all. I have to keep reminding myself that I've only been running uphills + not having very frequent breaks for a few weeks so it's going to take time to adapt, not to mention all the tendons and ligaments that aren't used to working. It's so good to finally be able to run/walk to the top of some hills cause didn't quite get to that stage at Scolty (walked up once, run down but it ruined my legs on both the uphill and downhill and had a niggle for ages after)
Moving back to Edinburgh has been a big change. Having to look after myself again is a huge additional stressor but I seem to have managed well, certainly better than last year. Since coming back I've mostly been focusing on getting the physical right/getting used to everything I have to do, but hopefully the focus will now turn to concentration once more. It's so nice to be able to see people again, although my covid risk has increased drastically.
