Played football after work with my colleagues this evening. Haven’t really done any running around since Christmas, so I was expecting myself to collapse on the floor after running for a few minutes. Surprisingly, I managed to run around for most of the game, and still managed short spurts of… faster than plodding… pace towards the end. I guess the whole thing about regular exercise is that the build up is gradual, and any tail off is just as gradual. A slow and continuous process.
