Welcome back to #TheZenZing, where I help you put the
zing back into your life.
This time I ponder how to change your zen to achieve your zing!
In a previous ZenZing I shared how I intended to start running and swimming again.
After I passed my health check with flying colours, I decided not to assume I would remain physically healthy.
I decided that I needed some cardio to get my blood pumping.
I completed the Couch 2 5 k a couple of years ago (you can read my poem ‘Cancer, jog on!’ here.)
So, I thought it wouldn’t take a huge amount of effort to get my fitness back.
And did it?
Well, I don’t know!
I never started the running again. Instead, our little girl has been swimming at her school and has been asking to go swimming at the weekends. So we’ve been a couple of times and although I’m not doing hardcore swimming, I’m still getting some exercise. It look like she’s getting very close to swimming unaided so it’ll be lovely to be able to do a width or 2 with her, moving on to lengths soon enough afterwards perhaps.
So, although my running’s been a non-starter (so far), swimming has taken its place!
And I’m okay with that because any exercise is better than none at all…
