I got the flu. My leg exploded (really). Our beautiful new baby girl kept me awake. All the excuses for not running for 6 months or so. A couple of weeks ago I blew the dust off my running shoes and went for a try at week 1 to see how I could do. I tried a steady pace and light jog combo but didn't last long. I almost gave up.
By the end of week 1 I pace ran the run parts and jogged all the walk parts. It is now week 4 and I am race pace running the run parts and happy jogging the walk parts. I never did quite manage the 5k in 30 minutes but I am hopeful this time. How on earth do my legs and lungs remember how to do this? I have run 30 minutes a couple of times quite happily.
I have a family wedding in July so I need to be kilt ready, c'mon legs!
