Running 20:00 [1] 3.4 km (5:53 / km)
shoes: New Balance (old)

THE RUN - 9pm

Took it very easy, as worried about knees and shins hurting again. Just 20 mins around Chelmsford, running interspersed with walking. Back home and knees ache a bit - will have to see what they are like in the morning.

Update: left knee achey, but nothing like a month ago. Think it's ligaments getting used to exercise again, specifically running. It's been a good few years!


Re(start) of my bid to become fit. Approaching 40, with two young kids and thoughts of my mortality have become more prominent!

Will build up RUNNING following a '0 to 10k in 6 weeks' plan. (I started a few weeks ago, but knees really hurt so going to start again, but slowly.)

Will likely incorporate CYCLING too.

Will also participate in ORIENTEERING so the running has a purpose i.e. will hopefully mean my orienteering times improve over time (if navigation skills also get better too!).

Plus, a weekly SQUASH session.
