week 5 run 1 :-)

Well, I feel as if I'm back now !! I have been out of running for a while due to cracked rib , then a slight loss of confidence with my running. I have to confess that I tried to pick up from week 5 run1 last week and it was a complete disaster :-( I couldn't seem to run for even 2 and 1/2 mins. I remembered as I was running this morning that with me , so much of my running is 'in my head' I truly believe that. I had the most amazing run and am looking forward to run 2 on Tuesday, so feeling really pleased with myself on this lovely sunny Sunday :-)

  • That must feel great to be back running after an enforced break. You'll soon be back up to speed, I am sure. Keep us posted as to your progress, kazzers. It will be an interesting reference for others who have to take a break.

    Keep running, keep smiling.

  • hey, Thanks Iannoda Truffe. I also remembered how supportive people are on here :-) I'll keep you posted:-)

  • It's great that you have had the motivation to start running again. Totally agree about so much being in our heads, and I am glad this last run went well. Keep at it and you will be back to where you left off in no time.

  • thanks lizziebeth57 I am feeling much more positive and looking forward to Tuesday for run number 2 :-)

  • That's great - it's good to see you back again and that you had an amazing run after a difficult start back. I hope all your future runs are like this one :)

  • As Iannoda says let us know how it goes. On a forced break myself at the moment (though nothing as painful as a cracked rib sounds) and am looking out for positive posts. Sunday was beautiful wasn't it?
