I haven't blogged in a while basically because I haven't run in a while. About 3 weeks ago I failed to finish a park run and then life took over - we moved house (enough said) and my running shoes stayed firmly in the shoe rack.
Anyway, I've tried to keep pretending that I can run really - I've kept volunteering at the park run and reading here if not writing much - and this week I've finally felt settled enough to start trying again.
So - yesterday was my first attempt at running since the park run fail (reasons unknown for that - tight legs but basically just stopped). I didn't try to run a particular time or distance - just ran when I could and walked when I couldn't. In the end I did about 4K half running, half walking in 34 mins. I'd know more accurately if I could find which box contains my Garmin charger Could have been worse. I discovered that this end of town (compared to where I used to live) is seriously hilly. I hope this won't be a problem when I start running properly again but I seem to live at the top of one of many hills here. My old routes were all near the river (flat!) - should I drive to there and then run? I'd prefer not to.
Today I have been swimming and did my 24 lengths in 30 mins (just like the 5x50), tomorrow is aerobics and then I'm volunteering yet again at the parkrun on Saturday. Not ready to tackle 5k again yet.
The purpose of writing this is more "rehab" than anything else. Hope everyone else is doing OK.
