So far, in spite of being out of the running for a week due to a gout attack, I've been able to lose about 3 kilos (that's 10 lbs to us Yanks) in 5 ~ 6 weeks. I really have had a much harder time starting however the last few workouts have gone longer and as an example of my walk along the beach yesterday, 3 - 4 clicks each way into town and back was really nothing. Ok, ok...maybe there was a pub in the middle of that walk, but it really was like nothing. It's too bad Daylight Savings Time has gone as after work, it was a perfect time to walk off the stress of the day and feel like I had accomplished something.
It really has been hard getting started and feeling somewhat better after a workout than before. I realized that maybe it has something to do with the intervening 30 years between regular visits to the gym. I guess I can't expect quick and easy miracles after that length of time away from the weights. Maybe someday soon, I'll run again. I really enjoyed that in the good old days, and funny thing is that I still dream about it. I wonder if I look like a sleeping dog while I do have those dreams.
Ok, enough of this self indulgence, I'll try to get you more good pictures and stories of the Underbelly of Oz soon.
