On a roll

Doesn't it feel great when you get a week or two when can actually get out and run to schedule you've set for yourself?After a long pause - niggling injuries etc. that has put me back to the start of my chosen 5k-10K plan - I am finally having one of those weeks \o/

I did my first Park Run on Saturday morning, a Canicross run with the club I belong to (lots of walking breaks but no actual stopping) yesterday morning and then risked an interval training run along by the river this morning. I'm not sure that I'll always be up to running 2 days in a row, but it's definitely something I want to work towards.

Think I'll have a proper rest day tomorrow (aka a gardening day) ready for a 35 minute run on Thursday.

Sounds like a great couple of days! Enjoy your rest day 👍🏼

I aim to, though looking at the weather report I'm probably going to end up going up and down to get stuff out of the loft instead of being in the garden.

Yes, it is great when everything goes to plan! Important to have rest days though. I managed four runs last week, the last on Saturday a 10k race! This week will be very different due to a busy week (B&B as well as work!). Enjoy the rest of your week. :)

Technically you could say I've run 2 days in a row a few times over the winter, but the stop start of a beginner run on a Sunday morning has never really felt like a 'proper' run and the next day's run was always in the evening.

I am a big fan of rest days, and I'm sure my spaniel will be glad of a simple stroll tomorrow. 🙂

I wish my spaniel would enjoy a stroll, he is usually flat out on our forest walks/runs :)

Bella is a special snowflake - especially taking into consideration she's half Springer!
