A few weeks back in an attempt to keep a focus on the ‘end game’ with the latest round of radiotherapy treatment I entered myself into a local 10k race (this Sunday). I knew at the time that perhaps it may have been the case that I might not be feeling well enough to run it.
Anyway, pleased to say that this week (where I was warned that the side effects of treatment maybe more obvious) has been a really good one!. I feel great…a bit tired but no issues with the lung that has prevented me from running or working. The leg injury that has been lingering around for a while has eased off a bit and I’ve been able to get a few training runs in.
Another reminder for me that plenty of physical activity throughout and post treatment massively helps recovery time.
The appointment with Alice is now in the diary for the 13th Nov. This will be where we have a general catch up and she books me in for a scan to hopefully have confirmation that I am once again ‘cancer free’….I feel very confident I am…let’s wait and see:-).
In the meantime, with plenty of running and a family holiday to look forward to, its onwards and upwards!
We keep an eye on your blogs Tom, and each time it is heart-warming to see how much progress you are making.
We wish you and the family a very well deserved holiday.
With much love and admiration, as always
