I had an operation on my right knee nearly 15 years ago. The surgeon said I wasn’t to start running again.
I don’t like walking for the sake of walking. And I find walking very unpleasant in the rain or cold. Therefore my physical activity was really minimal during all these years.
Late in the autumn I decided to try and walk everyday, on a small distance, near our house. Trying to walk briskly. And a fortnight ago I started a gentle jog. My aim ? Running 6km (3,75M) in one hour… And today it seems at hand.
Some will find it surprising but when I walk I think of my knees, of my feet. When running, I don’t ! I just enjoy the Nature that surrounds me.
