The thrill of hot water after a hard game...

There is nothing as delicious as the feeling of hot shower water hitting your body when you have just done an hour of hard exercise in the rain... Well, maybe there are better things, but tonight as the said water hit my aching body it was like heaven in a bath tub.

I have run twice this week and I am glad to note that I am getting a little faster - helped by the fact that I have lost more weight. The total now is 17 pounds and I am thrilled.Today I played football and it was brutal!! I stopped the ball going into the back of the net from a hard hit volley and I thought I'd broken my ankle!! Luckily after a minute or two of gentle rubbing all was well again! I did feel a bit scared of the ball after that though...

Now I am back home, cooking tea in between blogging and looking forward to running tomorrow.

Wow, I'm so glad I found your blog! Believe it or not, I've decided to start running again after a bit of a break. I ran a 12km fun run back in 2007 and cried when I hit the finish. Then I did a measley 5km run last year. Sadly, I didn't keep running but really miss it and this morning is going to be my first day back to start something I really love but find it hard to get the motivation! Now I think I've found it!!!
