My running comeback is still going well and everything is still on target. Luckily I didn’t set any impossible goals as I predicted the progress would be slow. It is actually a bit slower than I hoped it would be. I definitely suffer from OFS syndrome. No, this is not Orange Free State Syndrome. This is Old Fat Slow syndrome. Those of you who’ve been around will know what I mean.
Apart from this I’m happy with my progress and just feel a bit frustrated with the slow part. This is improving, but not very quickly. The fat part wasn’t changing much as well, but since I’ve upped my weekly distance to between 50km and 60km I’m starting to lose weight a lot quicker. I’m confident this will help with my speed as well. Less to carry will definitely equal faster times with the same effort. The old part…nothing I can do about that, but I feel great as not many 46 year olds are out running between 4AM and 6AM 6 days a week!
