So here goes nothing!
As some of you on the FB group will have seen, I've recently been through a very traumatic break up, from my long term partner. All a bit out of the blue, all a bit rubbish. That said- I am picking myself back up, and putting myself back together, and I've decided that running will be the best way to do that!
I graduated early last summer (May/June), and then stopped running. I'd got a new job, worked more like 9-5 instead of at home, and wanted to spend my evenings at home with him. So I stopped. And it was the stupidest thing I've ever done.
So, on Sunday, I'm going to get my things out of 'our' house. Including my Garmin and my running gear. I'm getting SUCH itchy feet to get out there and pound those pavements. I know that emotionally and mentally it will be the ABSOLUTE best thing. And who knows, I may even meet someone at a ParkRun down the line... And if I can lose a stone, all the better.
That said, I've lost a lot of fitness so I know that this is going to be difficult. Not sure what week to start at again- any advice?
Also, wish me luck!!! First run will probably be on Tuesday.. I'll keep you posted.
Lots and lots of running love,
