Hello! My weird little quest to become an actual super woman continues apace: 3 runs a week, 2/3 bike rides a week, kayaking, and walking. I have so many bruises, a couple of nice scrapes on both elbows from falling off bikes, and I have discovered muscles I didn’t even know I had.
Yesterday I went full bonkers and decided on a whim that after two weeks of running, I could do a Parkrun. I did it - 5km of running and walking, at my own pace, on a stupidly hot day, and while it’s not really about the time… I didn’t come last!
I feel good because I can tell I am improving every day and so there’s a sense of accomplishment as well as the rush of endorphins, but I also sort of feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. Is this what normal people feel like all the time? My God.
