Im back

run 10k and it puts me out of the game for over 2 weeks !! But no it wasnt the running, it was a virus I guess, but got out today, wasnt sure how I felt, wanted to, didnt want to, nervous, every emotion. Ran 5k, and that damn hill, the one that hates me ? ran 2/3rds of the way up the buggar, !!! Altogether covered 5k, back home now, sat on the settee all showered and content, so glad I am back in the game

Glad to hear your much better now - doing hills on your first run out is amazing, so hats off to you. You will get that hill!!! :)

Great that you're back and I'm sure you will soon work back to full fitness. Isn't it strange how, even after several solid months of running, a short lay off makes you fearful of not being able to do it any more. I had the same nerves after being on holiday then ill recently. Glad to report that it doesn't take long to get back on track - do you think it's all about confidence really?

Take care.

I must admit I was really tired after that 5k but chuffed I ran further up the hill then previously, and also started running again before I hit the actual brow, does that make sense ? I ran almost 2/3, then walked the very steep bit, then took off again before I reached the peak, I am confusing myself here ! Mind you my taking off is barely noticeable from my fully stopped !!!
