My last 5k run was on 8 August. Since then I've went down with all sorts and was quite poorly.
I started running again on 5 September and since then I've gone from 3.3k in 26 mins, to 5.15k in 39.44 mins today.
I hated not running while I was ill, so since I've been better I've gone back to running 3 times a week. Crickey, it's dark in the mornings nowadays isn't it? Have seen it as an excuse to do some shopping...
I've read many posts on here from people being worried about getting back up to previous fitness after illness, and it's something I've worried about, but now I really do know that if you come back with a steady pace and realistic expectations, then you'll get there in the end - and I've just done that!
I'm going to work on my 5k as I want to do a Parkrun. My local one is at Ashton Court in Bristol - it warns of some hills so I want to make sure I'm feeling fully fit and capable before I do that,. just give me a couple more weeks.
Right, I'm off now to enjoy the rest of my cheeky day off - a little trip to Ikea, catch up with friends etc
Have a great day and week everyone.
