Last week I couldn’t stand up straight, never mind run, but the miracle that is the human body has sorted itself out and now I can move around pretty normally. It does mean that I spent a whole week doing physio and not running. I hadn’t realised how my lifestyle had changed and that exercise of some sort or another had become part of it. Without it I have felt a bit lost and have gained a couple of pounds!
By this weekend I felt ready to give running a go, but wasn’t going to be home, having arranged to meet some friends at our old alma mater, St. Andrews university. Where else would you choose for e rejuvenating, spirit enhancing run other than the beach at St Andrews? I packed my trainers in anticipation, although the weather forecast was rain and I was predicting a substantial alcohol intake on Saturday night. On Sunday morning I awoke early, looked out of the window and to my surprise it was a beautiful sunny day. Quick as a flash I was dressed and out.
It was lovely out on the beach, sunny with a cool breeze blowing off the sea. Expectations on the enjoyment front were exceeded!
