The past few weeks have been a bit tough as I’ve been unwell, with a virus, and really bad cough. I’m still not recovered completely, but am now on the mend. Coinciding with this illness, work has been very busy and I’ve been starting at 6am. I didn’t have to take any sick days so I’m pleased that I was able to work through it, though I’m aware that this hasn’t aided my recovery time. During this time of illness, I have done no formal exercise at all, so along with not feeling well, I’m also feeling extremely unfit. I am getting back into my exercise program this week, albeit very slowly.
With this in mind, a few days ago I headed out onto the O’Keefe Rail Trail for a short and slow walk. There was nothing at all fast about this walk, but it was a rare sunny day so it was great to get out into the sunshine. Just to feel the suns rays on my face was exactly the medicine that I needed.
The Axedale section of The O’Keefe Rail Trail is one of my favourite walks and once again, it didn’t disappoint. I managed to walk 5 kilometres. This is such a tiny paltry amount compared to the distances that I have been walking, but it’s a start. Hopefully, very soon, I’ll be back to where I was before the illness.
