Been out of the loop for 8 days. Tried Speed this morning - not a good idea for a proper poorly girl!

I have not been out for a run for more than a week because of a nasty chesty cold. Indeed I have spent the last 4 days in bed. Today is a glorious day and much too good to miss!. Not a cloud in the blue sky, bright sunshine and cool. Decided to get myself out with the intention to just do a bit and stop if necessary. Didn't get very far before calf muscles very achy so decided most of the 'run' would have to be a walk. I'm glad I went out but only managed 3.5km in 39 minutes. Decided I really like the Speed intervals podcast and looking forward to trying again soon. Hopefully in full!

Yes Beek it's the first of them podcast I've tried & I like it .you did well to run that after being laid up , it takes it out of you .hope you are fully recovered soon


Hello Beek,

I've been doing the speed and the stepping stones pod casts. I'm feeling quite challenged after my C25K plod.

I have only listened to the intro for the stamina one and I'm ashamed to say...I swore at the lovely Laura
