Have been working steadily through my "to do"lists which I wrote in early January. One was called "stuff to do - dull" the other was "stuff to do - nice". I am pleased to report that things are getting ticked off both lists.
A big tick this evening - but still work in progress. I have been going to physiotherapy sessions every Tuesday since early Jan to get my aching, broken body mended so that I can run this dam 10k in May and not have to ask for a mobility scooter for my 53 birthday! The diagnosis was amusing - "weak bottom muscles", in other words - my gluteus maximus muscles were in retirement, not in use and were lounging around like jelly on a plate!
Week by week I have followed the plan and done the daily exercises. Brian and Fizz look on as my bemused audience while I squeeze and stretch on the living room floor every evening. Exciting news at todays session - apparently "my glutes are back in the room and working" - still work to do before I arrive at "buns of steel status", but I was allowed to run briefly and if there had been chart, think I would have been given a gold star.
Nice one Jo - feel quite proud that I have got this far and bizarrely these exercises have become part of my daily rhythm - and are therefore part of my Getting Better therapy, both physically and mentally.
Anyway, must sign off - time to get down and get squeezing - the things we do!
Lots of love
