Finally got a chance to run in the snow!! :) Although snowing so probably not the best time to go. Made myself rest for ~30min after just in case but it was definitely forced which is exciting.
First time in a while that excitement has been stronger than fear. A while ago the doctor said to not be scared of over doing it and definitely have been the past few weeks. For me it's a good thing as it stops me doing too much. It just becomes a problem if it stops you doing anything.

I've found 4 ways to deal with chronic fatigue. 1) Be too scared to do anything so stay within my comfort zone and feel better than if I was trying to do too much, but not improve what I'm able to do and not feel great either. 2) Don't do anything for a while, feel a bit better, then do too much because whatever I'm doing doesn't feel that bad, crash, and take a week to recover. 3) Consistently do slightly too much and gradually go backwards. 4) Consistently get close to my limits without going over them and improve, even if a lot of the time that means feeling more tired/having more symptoms than complete rest. From everything that I've seen or read doing literally nothing doesn't make you improve. It just stops you from overdoing it, and allows you to recover. Hopefully I understand my body well enough that the general trend. I'm sure I will over do it again but that's no biggy if the over all trend is up.
