Well I finally managed to get out there today for my first run of 2021.
I say run, it was more of slow shuffle really as I’ve had very little energy lately with all that’s been going on, grief certainly takes it out of you, but I was in need of something else to focus on, so felt I needed to get out there.
I chose the NRC Bests Of The Year Run, a 40 minute gentle run with Coach Bennett asking you to consider the highs and lows of the year. Well there’s been a lot of lows for most people in 2020, but he reminded me not to forget the highs too and these for me were graduating C25k, discovering this forum and you lovely lot and last but not least getting our puppy Harvey (photo included).
The run itself was ok to begin with but I found it tough, as it progressed, despite keeping to a slower than normal pace. I stuck with it though and it felt nice to be out there running in the fresh air again. I saw a few other runners who gave me a friendly wave or thumbs up, which was nice.
I finally completed the 40 minute run with Coach Bennett saying maybe this has been one of your best years or one of your worst, if it has, it’s important to focus on Positivity, Strength and Hope, I liked that and found it very appropriate. I think we all need to focus on those 3 this year.....P.S.H 👍
Happy Running Everyone 🏃♂️🏃♀️🏃🏼🏃♀️🏃♂️🏃🏼🏃♀️
