I’ve got cabin fever. Haven’t been running for four weeks now, following surgery on my…ahem…nether regions. Let’s just say some repair work was required after Baby was born last May.

All rather inconvenient, since I was hoping to complete a half-marathon well inside a year after giving birth but I’ve had to shelve those plans.
I barely left the house for two weeks after my op, and needed quite a bit of help looking after the munchkin. Thankfully, I am on the mend now, managing to get out and walk a couple of miles at a time and do a little bit of Pilates work at home.
