Inspired by my friend Tom who at the weekend finished an impressive 11th in a charity Runathon around the Imperial Palace (the grounds of, not the emperor’s corridors that it), I’ve restarted my morning exercise routine which had been sacrificed to ‘bad weather’ ‘tiredness’ ‘not enough time’.

The sun is warm and happy at 6.30am, and the park deserted. I’ve started listening to music instead of audiobooks / podcasts when running, which really helps my stamina (“won’t let myself stop until the end of this song!”) (thanks again to Tom).

Fitness is not just something that other people enjoy. I can experience it too 🙂
