Graduated a couple of weeks ago, just before going to Greece for two weeks holiday. Managed four runs while I was away, but no more than 3k - even at 6.30am, the heat and humidity were too much. Came home last Friday having gained half a stone, and first run on Saturday was terrible - 4k, but with numerous 30 second - 1 minute walking periods, and thus very slow. Monday was better, still only 4k (and 28 minutes) but with only 3 little walks. This morning just felt right as soon as I started (couple of good gym sessions have helped, I think) and I managed 5k with no rest periods, in just short of 35 minutes - not a personal best by any means, but my word it felt fantastic to know that I could still do it! Onward and upward now - until Christmas anyway.
