on the 9th April this year when I finished my 3rd half marathon in 2 hours 23 mins at age 70 , that one month later, my 101st parkrun at Fountain Abbey UK would be my last run for year 2017!!! It has been a long time since then - struggling with a broken bone in my foot which has been very slow to heal. I have discovered lots of other things in the meantime- my local gym, walking (not running) parkrun, cycling. In reality, so many things that I am now wondering how I will fit future running into my new life. My last xray one month ago showed that finally some part of the fracture is healing and I feel that it has progressed further since then. I think that I am on the cusp of starting over again - but want to force myself to control the urge for another month or so until the New Year. We have a local double parkrun on NYD which I ran last year and will walk this year - after that I will restart on my running journey - I think I will get back to running for 30 minutes non-stop over a couple of months on the treadmill at the gym - I have done a few 10 minute slow runs on it and it feels a lot easier/gentler than when I have tried running outside. After that I plan to do C25K all over again and hopefully finish it in time to do a parkrun in Southampton in early May . That would be my 4th International parkrun. Life is still good
