Two weeks before the end of the year my running plans were cut short by excruciating back pain that I haven’t experienced since being in labour over 20 years ago. I knew this pain was not a repeat of labour and it turns out its a bulging disc. The most comfortable position for me is lying flat on my back staring at the ceiling. Just what I need over the Christmas / New Year period. My iPad and a selection of books and magazines have helped to keep me sane.
So what was I thinking when an email arrived inviting me to join #writeandrun31?
Running is my passion. It’s the thing I love doing more than anything. It’s my meditation. It’s what disconnects and reconnects me to the world. So running every day in January would normally be a glorious start to the year. But this year, it seems a bit of a stretch.
One of the exercises I’ve been prescribed is Deep Water Running, so until I can get back out on the roads and trails, I’m going to spend every day Deep Water Running. Tick off 45 minutes for today!
Writing, well that’s another story. I just had a look at my blog stats and I published a *massive* 14 blog posts in 2014. Don’t worry, I’m not about to spam you with 31 blog posts this month, but I will be writing regularly. Some of this writing will be published and some will be for my own sanity.
I have some exciting plans for 2015. I’m not ready to share them yet, but as soon as they’re ready you’ll be the first to know. I’m really excited because there is going to be some great things for you this year, through Sweets and Greens. Follow along and see what’s happening.
