I am continuing to take it easy on the running front. I don’t know why, but my legs seem to have no oomph at all, and the more I rest, the worst it appears to get. My left heel is still giving me some trouble too, and it’s also not responding to rest. Both problems might be due to something other than running, but I can’t work out what that might be.
Not to worry, as the minimal running I’m doing will ultimately help me to freshen up mentally. I just have to make sure I don’t put on too much weight in the interim.
I’m making good progress on the book – I estimate I’ve completed about the equivalent of a hundred pages so far. We’re heading down to Victoria after Christmas and I expect to do a fair bit of writing during that break.
It’s hard to believe it’s coming up to two years since I began my run around the world. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. I almost – but not quite – feel like starting it all over again. No doubt some similar challenge will present itself before too long.
Have a good Christmas.
