I injured my foot during a half marathon, four weeks ago and have been resting it ever since. At one point I was worried that I wouldn't be able to run for the last medal in the Hogwarts Houses series.

Today, I decided that I would attempt some exercise more strenuous than walking and see how I got on with regards to distance. I'm pleased to say that I managed the full distance of 9.75km going at an easy pace.

It felt good to exercise again after a month without any. My mood is affected when I don't, or can't, exercise and I have felt that I've been struggling. Going forward, I need to make sure that I'm fully prepared for the longer races so that I don't pick up any more injuries. Especially as I've signed up for Medal Mad's 1000 mile challenge next year.

I can't wait to have the Gryffindor medal in my collection along with the Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin medals. They truly are gorgeous medals.
