Well, I received some bad news last week.
My childhood illness and too many miles on too heavy a body have taken their toll.
I have been advised, by my physio, not to run anymore. My knees are shot and even a short walk yesterday had me in pain.
In under 5 months, I have went from a running coach, running event coordinator and a running blogger contemplating my first ultra marathon to someone who struggles to walk to the shops.
The old me would be wallowing in self pity, but what good will that do me?
My condition isn’t life threatening and with time and training I can repair some of the damage and ensure that I remain mobile and surgery free for as long as possible.
I will do this with cycling and weight training.
I bought a new bike (used my health rewards to get 50% off it) and I will be cycling to work before throwing myself into cycling challenges
I am not one for sitting around (literally ) so I’ve been speaking to friends in the cycling world and I am going to be involved in some exciting projects. Hopefully, I will become as passionate about cycling as I was for running.
My running days might be numbered, but I will keep moving.
