A much better run today๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Well my first run back after illness may have been awful๐Ÿ˜ฎ and the second one only a little better but today I felt much more like my old self!๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Like JaySeeSkinny, I ran this evening in order to try and avoid the worst of the heat. It was still warm but actually ok to run in and the whole run felt so much better ๐Ÿ˜€. I had just planned to do a 5k but ended up running on to 6.5k - I should know by now that fitness (so hard earned) does not desert us completely and returns relatively quickly. On another positive note, I have just found out that there is a local 10k in the village where I live at the beginning of July and part of the route is on a bridleway that I run on regularly! Definately going to have to do that one!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

It is good to know that fitness levels don't desert us that quickly. Mind you, they are hard earned! Glad you're starting to enjoy your runs again.

Really good to hear Sandraj. After my asthma issues I was pleasantly surprised to also find the fitness still there not too far below the surface, in fact few months down the line things are better than ever. Great return back to form :)
