Back after injury

Hi everyone. After a four week injury break I tentatively went out last night with week 7 still on the MP3 and thought I'd just see how it went. I managed 15 minutes running, then took three short walks (30 secs) during the next 10, before running the final 5. Today I have done a 9 hour shift with no time for a break (I cook in a cafe) and feel fine. So...after another day at work tomorrow, I am going out on Sunday determined to complete the 25 min run. Fingers crossed I'm back in the game!!!
