Yesterday was three years since I took control & started changing my life.

Over the last twelve months my journey has taken me through a few lows, and a few massive highs. In October I ran in my first 5km Parkrun at Portarlington, having never run 5km non-stop in my life I did it the first time. I then did this most Saturday's until New Year's & then set myself a new challenge by nominating myself to run in the 10.7km Bellarine Sunset Run. After I ran in Parkrun on 30/12/17 I woke up the next morning in agony, I had serverly strained my hamstring/abductor muscles. It looked like the Sunset Run was in jeopardy, being unable to go on walks for two weeks. I had to do most my rehab whilst on holidays, doing 5km walks with running intervals for a week at Warrnambool, then doing 3.5km runs mostly up hill around the Blue Lake at Mount Gambier for the second week. I got home five days before the run, and in preparation/giving myself the confidence to do the Sun Run, on the Wednesday prior I ran a personal best 7.1km's non-stop around Queenscliff.
On Saturday 3/2/18 I accomplished one of the greatest achievements in my life, running the 10.7km Bellarine Sunset Run non-stop from St.Leonards to Portarlington. In constant pain from my Fibromyalgia & wearing a brace around my hamstring I did it!
My running continued with a couple of more Parkrun's and then I participated in the 10km Geelong River Run which I also completed non-stop, at the end of February. Since then I haven't been running as I have had reoccurring hamstring issues, and have put my efforts into weight training on my legs to make them stronger so I can get back to running in the near future (one step back, two steps forward). #FibromyalgiaWontStopMe #NeverGiveUp #IWillGetMyHealthBack #IWillGetMyLifeBack #NoPainNoGain #IfItIsToBeItsUpToMe #Exercise #Running #Cycling #BikeRiding #Weights #Fibromyalgia #Health #Life #BellarineSunsetRun #RiverRunGeelong #Parkrun
