I just had to share this, I'm like a dog with two tails tonight! I've been following Laura since November and I ran into an injury around Christmas. I've been trying to rest, ice etc and keep going as I'm desparate to finish. I got new running shoes (gait analysis, advised by physio) about 3 weeks ago, but because my injury has been stiff and tender I was losing the will to live. So id almost given up but a friend told me about a running group. Beginners. Along the prom she said so I thought I'd give it a go. Maybe I'm causing the injury and maybe some advice and support would help. Well it's been tipping down all day. I've brought all my running gear to work including spangly new shoes. I've been mulling it over all day. Little voices in head saying...you can't do this, you're not a runner. And the rain has been torrential, but I turned up for the group joining twelve other hardy souls. And I ran with a running group. I RAN WITH A RUNNING GROUP. UNBELIEVABLE. I've never run in front of anyone before. And I wasn't last. And my ankle didn't hurt and the running felt glorious and easy and I could DO IT. WOW. GET ME. CHUFFED TO BITS. just thought you lot would understand. Husband however thinks I'm mad.........
