I haven’t been very active on the blog recently. I find it hard to write about the trivial details of my life (and runs) when all over the world people are losing their lives to COVID-19.
But it is important to find joy where we can, and to stay positive. This disease is taking people’s lives – and it is also having a massive negative impact on mental health.
It is for our mental as well as physical health that we are still allowed to go out for exercise once a day in the UK. I have been making good use of my one-a-day.
This morning, I went out for a run in the quiet lanes around my home. It was my long run – not as long as the runs I was doing while marathon training – but long enough for a hot day. I am going to have to work hard to get acclimatised to running in warm weather again.
Wherever you are, stay safe. And try to find some joy to help see you through the hard times.
