Exciting times, I did my first run on Monday, it exhausted me! I met up with my running partner Caroline and the plan was to do an easy 10k, I only managed 8k as everything seemed to feel so hard but was glad I managed to get out. Later that day I started sneezing, got a sore throat and generally felt awful so was in bed by 7.30 – I could have sworn this running lark was supposed to be good for us!
Fast forward to Wednesday when I went out for run number 2, this time I only aimed for 8k and managed to complete it feeling much better and legs stronger although my chest was heaving so things are looking up. On Friday I will go for a slightly longer run but this time with a light backpack and see how I feel.
After a lot of consideration I have decided that I will take part in the Desert Ultra. My flights are booked and plans in place so would be silly not to. As long as I finish I will be happy; now its time to get my head back into running mode which I must admit I’m still struggling with.
On Saturday I’m taking part in the MDS Expo, a tad nervous to put it mildly but looking forward to hearing James Cracknell, Fred Compagnon, Felicity Aston and Kenton Cool speak and catch up with a few friends. Hopefully I will get some people along to my talks along with Simon Robinson from X-Bionic – see you there!
Right off to get myself glammed up ready for a girls night at the Graham Norton Show. On the information you get sent it says:

So I’m going with clippy cloppy shoes and sparkles!!
