Did I say I’d never felt stiff?!


Turns out that if you do no running (or anything else) for a month then go out for a 30 min run you might just feel it! Not enough to stop me going out again today though. I’ve decided to stick to about 30 min so that I keep it fun (was beginning to lose that) and I’m still managing about 4K even if I allow myself to walk a bit. I’m a stickler for following rules and while I was on C25K I did that. Once I finIshed I became ruled by numbers (and envious of my fellow graduates). I’m now making my own rules

3 times a week

30 min (ish)

Have fun

I’ve not ruled out greater challenges but just not yet!!

That sounds like a good plan. It is so easy to get caught up in what everyone else Is doing (been there, done that, got the t-shirt 😀) that you forget what is right for you right here, right now. Enjoy your runs

Thank you. My wardrobe is full of t shirts! 🤣


Only way to go.... be your own boss, drive your own goals based on YOU. Perfect.

Cheers. I’m hoping that the more relaxed me will find the energy for future challenges. Maybe even sign up to your plan. I’ve hidden it away just in case! 😆


Welcome back to running again Sybilw, and enjoy those 30 minute journeys. 🏃‍♂️😃

Thank you I will do and with a bit more planning (now that schools are back) I’ll get the little ginger one to join me again.


Sounds like a good plan, and you can change it whenever you feel like it.
