So graduated back in April and after a few weeks completely lost momentum for various reasons and have not been running properly for maybe 2 months. Just once in a while. Thought I could just climb back on the horse, so on Sunday off I went for a 5K. First 15 mins ok. Then the ratio of running to walking went increasingly in favour of walking...... Cross with myself I have entered a 10K (??!) run on 12th October. Started on the Samantha Murphy bridge to 10K today and I'm really pleased to say I managed it - 4 lots of 10 mins with a 1 min break. It was hard though. Is this the right thing to do though? I think the reason I stopped running the 5K was because I got bored, so I figured the 10K would challenge me, and its seems easier to do it in smaller chunks at first after not running properly for so long?
