Many thanks for all the support I've had this week: I've been out today for a 15 minute fun run and really enjoyed it :)

Following my last post when I was really struggling to get out there and get past 8/1 I did go out today as recommended and just run for fun. And what's amazing it, knowing that 15 minute felt like it would be fun to run ...and it was. I couldn't of conceived of that 10 weeks ago!

I just played music I liked and used my new Garmin forerunner 10, with which I am now in love. Took 15 mins to do 2k.

My next goal is to make sure I get out there again on Tuesday come hell or high water, to get back into the routine of running 3 times a week after a scrappy few weeks when it has defaulted to once a week. I'll aim for another fun run and see what happens.

Thanks so much everyone - you made such a difference.

  • That sounds like you had fun and that's what's it all about You'll soon get back to 3 week but dont push it too hard Maybe keep as short fun runs at first and then increase distance to get back to where you used to be
