Despite the headache/med issue, I am trying to keep on keeping on. So at PT today when I was cleared to do cardio (as long as it doesn’t hurt) along with my at home exercises I was excited. (I had taken last week off everything besides walking so I could focus on my knee). I checked the gym schedule, but all the spin classes were full. 🙁
So since it wasn’t raining and the sun was sort of out, I decided to go outside and run. I figured that since I am going to Write this Run, I should well, get out and run. Crazy, I know. I walked over to Kelvingrove Park and did a few rounds using the C25K app. Despite the hills, I had no issues at all. I actually felt good. (I normally prefer to run on the treadmill. I know I’m a weirdo!) I was surprised at how “easy” the run portions were; I guess all the lifting and the spinning has helped!
(I realised how crap my running playlist was today, ugh!)
I was out for about an hour which included walking to the park and back. It was really nice to be outside and to just be. (Except for the part where a group of people pointed and laughed at me, that wasn’t fun at all. 🙁 ) I know I am not the most graceful of runners, and that whenever I work out I get as red as a tomato, but that doesn’t mean I want or deserve to be laughed at. It really gets me down when things like this happen to me; like last year when I got spit on and called a “Fat bitch” while I was in London. I just don’t understand why people feel the need to bring others down to make themselves feel better.
I hope that with the added exercises from the PT that I will be able to incorporate runs on days where the weather isn’t complete shit here in Glasgow. I am glad that one aspect of my life is coming together. 🙂
