Hiya and welcome to a new week.

Sometimes we don't feel like putting a whole post up but just want to share something small, so this is a great place for doing that during the week.

If youre a lurker it is a great place to say a little hi without the pressure of a full post.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy week,

Hoping to get back to 10k this week, had some quick runs and some snow runs but nothing over 5k and I have had some walk breaks which I haven't done for months. The walk breaks crept in because my pace went up so much I thought it made sense to cope with it by walking a little but still having an overall faster time. But I find walking is so tied up mentally with failing a run(yes I know we don't use that word) it negatively affects my ability to start and keep going. So need to get out tuesday night and keep the pace nice and slow, maybe even leave the garmin behind and just run unencumbered by that little time demon for a change.

Don't know how I will feel about having no evidence of a run, will be like it never happened....

I think once I had run 10k, my pace was a little faster...whether its gaining strength or just mentally feeling more confident...

We will believe that your 'free' run happened...but I know exactly how you feel about having no stats....

Good luck for that 10k run when you go for it.😊x

I have a virtual run this week for International Women's Day which will be my last run for a little while so I want to make it count :)

Not been running since 22 Feb but I started antibiotics for my pesky 2-week sinus infection yesterday so hopefully back out pounding the pavements later this week :-)

I've been stretching and rolling my piriformis for over a week now. It's not aching any more, I'm beginning to think I might try a little trot in the next few days. Nothing much, just a small test. The view from the IC is a bit boring, but I don't want to overdo it or I'll be stuck here even longer.🙈

Good idea Sandy, a test run sounds right. Take it easy no rush, be patient and you will get back to your brilliant distances and pace soon enough.

Fingers crossed for you😊xx

My last excursion was almost 2 weeks ago and didn't go well. Going to attempt a little trotette in a while. I think it's common to feel a bit nervous about starting out again, so I won't wander far... I promise. 😉

...I'm back! Still not properly fixed up yet, but I took it really slowly. I passed a tree stump which smiled at me as I plodded past. There's nothing like a bit of encouragement is there? 😀 I'm just so relieved to have that first outing over with. I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to go out more often but for 2.5k-3.5k plods. 🤔

I think so Sandy😊...little and often (still with rest days) is a great idea. Like we did when we started running.

Im doing 30 minute runs til later in the month, then building up for a 10k again early May.

I Saw your smiley tree stump pic on Strava... so encouraging, a sign from the running gods?😉xx

That's a great plan you have there. Enjoy the journey.

I'll be happy when I can get back up those hills on a Saturday. Maybe I'll go back to find the tree stump grinning! 😆
