I love going to BMF (British Military Fitness), it is one of the few exercise activities I have found in recent years that I enjoy and have stuck at. As mentioned in my first post I was wondering how I was going to fit this challenge in and include my BMF classes. But tonight I decided that while I get used to running day in day out I would give it a miss for a week or two.
What a good decision that was. A mile in and my calves started to feel really tight (I thought that can’t be right, I am only 3 days in), not enough to stop me but enough to re-enforce to that this is going to take a bit of getting used to and I don’t need to kill myself right at the very start.
So I got back and did lots of stretching – I have downloaded a yoga app to my ipad which is actually rather good. Just a shame I look like a scaffolding plank when trying to copy the girl demonstrating the really bendy stuff…… oooooer!
I have also started to read Born To Run which after a few chapters in has really captured my imagination. I like the sound to barefoot running or at least running on your toes more, it certainly points to why I have had so many niggles and injuries over the years – perhaps trying to do that is why my calves are aching now!
So, having started the challenge I am now looking forward to getting a couple of weeks under my belt and then getting back to BMF.
