OK, training has started!
Last spring I bought myself a personal GPS, a 'watch' type which straps on my wrist so is easy to use walking/cycling/running. I didn't use it in anger except for a couple of runs I did, and for curiosity value on dog walks. Today I have put new batteries in it and can monitor my progress.
And for what am I in training? To get back to my previous fitness before the crash. I might not have been a super athlete before but I was above average fitness/strength. I reckon it's going to take me the rest of this year and maybe then some.
It's a daunting thought but at least I will get back to it.
