What happened to the ‘Writing’ bit? As followers of this blog will know, the book on ME/CFS is now written and selling. But, if you haven’t yet got your copy of M.E. and me: Chronic Fatigue, My Recovery After 10 Years, please click on this link.
The training continues apace. This was the last in a series of relatively similar training weeks. Things begin to move forward from here. I was programmed to complete a 10-minute run on Wednesday and I did this in the forest, as I’d been unable to run last week due to a back problem (I visit the hospital for an X-ray this Wednesday and have an appointment with the physio early in August). I found the run easy, but it was a useful ‘starter’. Friday saw me running my usual 20-minute trot through the forest and I covered a little more distance in a shorter time than previously; so, progress! Sunday was a 20-minute brisk walk, which I did with my wife through the village. I’m not sure how the training works, and why there’s an occasional walking session interspersed with the runs, but it seems to work, so I’m following the programme the organisers have laid out for me.
The next two posts in this series will give only details of the programme’s demands but no results. There’s a reason for this, which I’ll explain in a different post, Technophobe, Technophile, or Technosceptic?, later this week. But I should be back to normal posting by 13th July, so please bear with me.
