Perhaps exercise should be prescribed for insomnia.
I am back in the swing of things. After my slight break from exercise due to a rather nasty infection in my foot I had my first work out last night and loved it.
I went to one of my two regular martial arts classes and spent 90 minutes getting thrown about and generally beaten up and tonight I am subjecting myself to more punishment.....
I had missed the buzz that comes with exercise. I don't know what the scientific terms are but whether it be endorphins or adrenaline or a combination of the two I walked out of my class feeling shattered but also fantastic. I also had one of my best nights sleep in a long time - perhaps exercise should be prescribed for insomnia.
So tonight, as long as it isn't chucking it down with hailstone or sleet (which the BBC weather centre is forecasting) I plan to go for a nine mile run.
This will be my longest run since starting my Flora London Marathon training campaign. I have been managing runs of about six miles up until now but with only two months and fourteen days to go until the big day I think I need to start stretching myself. I will also incorporate a few steep hills into the route to add to the challenge.
