I'm really not supposed to be running because of a chest infection. Antibiotics all finished but still don't feel exactly right. However..... Daughter no. 1 has started c25k w1 but is running far too fast, so I said I'd just do the warm up walk with her and run one 1 minute interval to help her judge her pace. After being off running for 2 weeks it felt sooooo lovely to get the beautiful ugly shoes on and set off. Warm up walk finished, we set off for the first one minute interval. It felt wonderful. I have missed running so much, I can't tell you. After 1 minute I was supposed to be sensible and go straight home and leave daughter to it but, you've guessed it, I felt she needed just a little more help (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!) so I did the next run interval with her then turned round and, of course, ran home. I didn't run for very long, honest, but it was fab, it was easy and it felt really good. Hope I haven't pushed any remaining germs even further down into my lungs but I just couldn't help myself. Sometimes you've just got to do it.
