Fighting Fit for Forty
Secondly, I know I'm not actually forty until year after next but, as Sally says in When Harry Met Sally...'But it's out there!'
Inspired by the many superfit people I know (including my awesome brother who runs marathons in the American wilderness) I decided to fight back, rather than sitting on the couch, feeling feeble and moaning about my mild asthma, lack of energy etc and generally declining depressively toward the big 4-0.
Running is really hard for me, but already I can breathe better, look better and enjoy being out in the fresh air. I'm only on week 3, but I have (always a reckless optimist) signed up for a 5K in September.
I would like to thank all the people who have supported me in starting this scary thing, especially my husband Alistair, my friend Fiona and my brother Tim.
