Things can only get better !!

I was hoping to inform that normal service had been resumed running wise but alas it has not been so..

It has been a real struggle to get out there, the confidence and slight swagger hiding in the shadows,to many false dawns ... it was easier not to run so that is what I did again..

I am now managing to get back out there, nothing major for now slowly building back up.. I think the better weather and expanded waistline did the trick.. we will see If this is to be a sustained return .I feel it us that is the main thing ...

As Laura says , you can do this !!!

Hoping all us good with you all and you are being good to yourselves and the running God's are smiling down on you 😊

  • Hope you rediscover your swagger! Maybe start slowly, I found run-walking was good for me when I regained confidence after a mystery calf pain kept stopping me. I would run for a while, then walk, it allowed me to enjoy the running bits again and recover. Got right back on track doing this

  • Nice to see you back again Rob - slow is fine, you know that on here, and our mojo often wanders off and hides under the couch. Well done for getting back out there :)

  • Lovely to hear from you again, not_so_slow_rob. Take your time to regain your past form, Sweetie. You are, after all, the king of the gradual build up. Good luck x

  • Hey, we accept abnormal service, any kind of service will do for us!

  • Nice to hear from you Rob, great that you have started back again, like everyone says, slow and steady ,onwards and upwards πŸ˜†

  • Good that you are getting out there Rob, keep up the good work - but be kind to yourself, take it steady and relax. All the best, and keep posting!

  • Ah Rob, it's so lovely to see your name pop up here again. You're back out there and that's all that matters. Keep posting x

  • Well done Rob x I've been on and off running over the year, more 'on' than not recently due to an impending 10k race in May.

    It's good to know you can get back to it, long-term aspects have to allow for the natural ebbs and flows of life.

    Good luck πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ

  • Glad to see you back, Rob! Slowly but surely, one day at a time... running in the sunshine is much more motivating, you'll soon be back in the running groove :)
