For me this year finally got under way on the 28th February. No, I'm not on some weird calender but that was the first day this year I had enough energy to get on with anything. Up until then I had been struggling to find enough energy to be retired! I was sleeping most mornings and cleaning the house on a Friday meant that Saturday was a washout as I had no energy left. Given that I hadn't felt like this at the end of last year my suspicion is that I picked up some form of viral infection which left me run down but not ill.
My problem now is that I mustn't overdo it but I am back doing a few exercises and I'm trying to make sure I walk at least a mile each day. Today I went for a 2 mile walk and I feel a bit achy but at least I was able to walk that far again.
