Following five and a half weeks 😮 out due to cold/flu virus, infected sinuses/cough which needed antibiotics to clear and finally a bad back cause by all the coughing (!😂😩) I actually got out for a run before breakfast this morning. Beautiful sunny morning and I felt so happy to be out again - but oh my goodness, it felt so hard!😮 I expected it to feel tough after so long off but wasn't quite prepared for how rubbish I would be!! Never mind, onwards and upwards, hoping to slowly progress and get back to my running plans now which are to focus on speed and 5/10ks during the summer before increasing distance again for my second HM later in the autumn. Feels like a lot of hard work ahead of me after this mornings effort but these things have a habit of coming together (I hope!) The next few runs however, will all be about slow and steady and just being grateful to be back out there.🙂 Happy bank holiday running!
