    So i have been quiet recently as I had an opearation and so havent been running. Just to do with my lack of kidney function so im all good now, I have decided to venture into the world of zwift! I borrowed a device from my running group (The Lonely Goats) and I actually loved it that much i bought my own device the second time i used it. Its really different and I really think it will get me back into running again. I was so dissapointed that after my surgery in feb I was unable to run. HOWEVER game on. The past is the past and i am gping to not dwell on my not running. I am going to focus on getting those kms in. I have been cycling to work everyday and home and afyer my op (which was in my arm) I was walking to work.

    The best thing about being classed as being "extremely vulnerable" by the government is I now have 12 weeks to focus on getting my running back on form. Luckily I have a treadmill at home. And potentially I will be on full pay also which is a massive relief. I noticed that my fitness is completely gone and I must get it back. Im going to try and see where this zwift takes me. Im hoping it takes me back to where I was fitness wise before my op.

    Running has really taken off this week, I have been getting the kms in. I have run more this week than I have in the past 4 months!! I think I have firmly found my mojo again. I have found a way to get my butt out the door or on the treadmill, I don't give myself the chance to over think things, I just get my kit on and go. Which makes sense. 😂. I am really just enjoying running again.

    So this year has began okay. I have managed yo get 5km done running which is pretty poor, but a good 20km of all activities. So im in good shape to achieve my goal this year. I will be joining more medals this year as I will use this as added motovation yo get my ass out the door, it's suprising how much of a mental game running is. Often I find myself saying to myself 'i can't be bothered' or 'I will go tomorrow'. Well not this year. I am planning on running every other day at first until I get back into the swing of things. However I wont punish myself if I dont manage to get out, I will merely try and make up the Kms at a later date.

    I think this year is going to be a good year for my running.

    So I havent posted recently. This is due to I gave up. I decided that running was never meant for me.

    However I realised I had got to the point that I was running for Strava. I was running for other people. I was exhausting myself just to prove myself to people I dony even know. I felt I had something to prove as I am not as capable as I used to be.

    However after taking some time to re-evaluate. I have decided its okay if i dont want to run. Its okay if i want to run twice in a day. More importantly its okay if I dont achieve my targets. I was beating myself up over something that wasnt that important.

    I now run because i enjoy it. Thats it. No more targets. No more pushing myself beyond my capabilities.

    However on a lighter note I check my Vo2 max and was pleasently suprised! Not bad for someone with end stage renal failure .
