Decided to give running a 'go' today after a tight calf muscle had been sabotaging my adventuring. In my mind, it was going to be a 5k but if I was ok a slow 10k! Very pleased to report, the calf muscle was great, didn't stop me at all. I went for a "lost in the woods" adventure so I did walk several times - stung through my running tights by a huge stinging nettle, breathed in a fly (small one, soon removed), stroked an over excited leaping pug and his two friends, couple of gates to get over/through, more mud and water than I thought possible, to admire the view and finally stood under a dripping tree to shelter from a downpour! Loved EVERY minute of it. All in all, feel that "taking it easy", walking when I need to and a lovely slow running pace resulted in a fabulous running adventure today and my confidence in myself and belief I can run is restored. Couple of days rest, then a couple of slow 5ks this week will be sufficient.
