This morning following my run I had a leisurely breakfast at home with my two boys before heading to the gym for a spin class.
I really pushed myself hard today - average heart rate of 75 - 85%. I rode next to a good friend so we pushed each other throughout the class.
Knee was really good - started to hurt a little in the last working track but nothing too bad - no swelling now so that is a good sign.
I am really enjoying training again at a good intensity - the endorphin rush I get from exercising is awesome.
Prior to competition prep and before my knee started giving me trouble I really loved the freedom of hitting the pavement for a road run.
Well I had been thinking maybe i would get back out there and give it a go - I was feeling a little reluctant because i really wondered what the knee might do!!!
Last night I organised my gear so when i woke this morning all i would need to do was get dressed and go.........
I have just returned from a very successful 3 km run without any stops....... I am rather impressed with my self. My knee felt great on the run and still feels good now.
I will now aim to run the same distance in less time and then add distance as my fitness increases.

It feels like ages since I got on here to blog...... and when I look at the date of my last post it has been ages.
I will be back with pictures and a longer blog to tell you what I have been up to in the next day or so. I have just got on now and attempted to load pics but without success..... very frustrating but never mind - will have another go tomorrow when I have a little more time.
I hope everyone is really great and enjoying the festive season. xxx
