I'm Back! (I Think?)

Hi All

Bad news is I haven't run properly since about August but I ran last week, Sunday morning and have done two runs this week, with another tomorrow (fingers crossed).

It was a huge relief to find out that the laminate in the conservatory doesn't enhance the noise of the treadmill too much when I'm running - yippee!

Even though my first run was only a mile (12 minutes), I was surprised I managed it "fairly" easily considering I've done nothing but eat since last year. I was also surprised to remember how satisfied i feel after a hard workout. Hopefully, the sunnier days will encourage my enthusiasm and I can get back to where I was last summer (3 runs a week, at least one being a 5k).

Go Go Jo!!!

PS: we have been in our house for two months now and it's absolutely bloody brilliant!!!
