Couch to 5K

Im still around

Hi all , still hanging around on here but havent been posting much because been quite busy with one thing or another . Still plodding on went out yesterday and ran for 30 mins after five weeks abstinence due to holiday etc. . I did ok took it steady covered 4k hoping to build it back up again but with my injury history, will use caution . Everybody is doing great i can see and its great to read all the inspiring posts . Anyway just to let you all know ive still got the running bug and hope to keep posting and keep running ..

Hey Rockette, good to hear from you and to know you're still strutting your stuff. You'll get back to your pre-injury levels soon enough, but in the meantime, if you're anything like me, I'm just grateful for every niggle-free run I do. Happy running Sweetie :)

Hey Rockette, good to hear from you and glad you are still running. Been wondering what you were up to. Hope you had a good holiday, a 3 to 4 break from running is meant to pay off big time in unceasing your speed and distance after a month or two building back up. So said an article someone posted yesterday either here or on the Facebook page!

I am fine, no more injuries and chest/lungs are okay so all's good. Still running 3 times a week, aiming for a 10k in December and another in January (both 'virtual' 10k's - more info on the beyond c25k Facebook page). I have also joined a running group (the same one as Rona - Fitfor60 - goes too) which I think is going to stretch me a good bit. Second meeting tonight!!!
