<div style="margin-top:0px;margin-right:0px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-left:0px;padding-top:5px;padding-right:5px;padding-bottom:5px;padding-left:5px;font:normal normal normal 13px/1.231 arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif;background-color:rgb(255,255,255);color:rgb(0,0,0);text-align:left;font-family:'Times New Roman';line-height:normal;font-size:medium;">
<p style="margin-top:0px;margin-right:0px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-left:0px;padding-top:0px;padding-right:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-left:0px;">Not for the first time I've decided to start running again.  Usually this happens around January 1st so I guess I'm six months late.  Usually it stops again around June 1st so maybe I've missed the bogey patch.</p>
<p style="margin-top:0px;margin-right:0px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-left:0px;padding-top:0px;padding-right:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-left:0px;">But this time I have an added incentive.  I play tennis and compete locally and have noticed that my fitness level really isn't up to much.  If I don't get fitter I won't get those pesky drop shots or whatever.  I lost a match yesterday - although that was mostly because she was better than me - and I have another tournament in early July.  A bit short but I'm not a total couch potato and I think a bit of running will go a reasonable way.  I won't be training for marathons or even 10ks but if I can run three or four times a week for just half an hour the dog will be delighted and so will I.  </p>
<p style="margin-top:0px;margin-right:0px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-left:0px;padding-top:0px;padding-right:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-left:0px;">Anyway, here I am, my intentions are good and if my foot doesn't start hurting then I'll keep at it...I hope!</p>

<p>It will be limited for a few weeks as my maximum distance is about 3.5ks at the moment.  But I have to get fit for tennis so I'm determined this time to keep at it.</p>
Thanks for your message.</p>
