It's taken me ages to get back into the swing of running again. The only thing I could think of doing was join a running club with my running partner. It's taken me over a year of struggling with running just a 5k but I think I've cracked it.
It was as if the mind wanted to run but the body just didn't. Running with a club has meant that I've not been sure what route was going to be taken and no avoiding hills. Also the club runs longer distance than just 5k which has been an extra challenge and accomplished.
I want to try to get to running 10k I'm going to take it slowly. I can feel the odd creek and pain. So carefully does it.
