Well I hope not 🙂 I’ve been following several characters on Twitter and one thing that does come across, is the fact that most, regardless of how busy their lives are, always seem to make some time for the gym and / or general fitness activities. If they can find the time, there’s no excuse for me.
So today, for the first time in several months, I went for a morning run. Granted, it’s only two miles, but for my ageing joints (and weight) it’s enough 🙂 I have to say I felt dreadful during it, but after a nice relaxing shower and some (light) breakfast, all now seems well. Sure I’m aching a little, but that will soon pass. If I’m to get back into cricket with any degree of conviction I need to do this and loose some weight.
Most sportsmen seem to set themselves small targets in the immediate future, “only thinking of next game” and all that. I’m going to do the same. I’m giving myself until my birthday to see if I can shed around 4kg.
I’ve stocked up on Ryvita and yogurts, let’s see how it goes. Just don’t ask me to give up alcohol though, I look forward to my odd pint and glass of wine 😉
