First Day at Big School!

First Day at Big School!

Well you know how life can roll sometimes, and for 6 months I have had to re-establish myself but i finally think that I am getting there ..... I'm still sure where there is but I'm moving forward towards it.

So with spring in the air and a MASSIVE dose of inspiration from my wonderful mentor I have decided to re-kindle my soul and with the help of Laura and all of you guys on here I am doing C25k all over again.

Just had my new gear delivered today and was opening and trying it all on and reminded me of the time I moved up to big school - Shiny new uniform, shiny new shoes & brand new pencil case, still apprehensive but I kind of knew what to expect then, kind of know what to expect all over again now in running, but in my little head I want to revise and re-learn before going in for the hardcore stuff.

Next Tuesday is W1R1 - and it's almost 2 years to the day that I started it all last time too....

Good luck to everyone and above all else Happy Running.

MrMatthew.

Hello, welcome back. I don't know about spring in the air! I was out running just now and it was freezing and the wind was howling fit to bust! Lovely starry sky though.

Good luck for run one on Tuesday. Go nice and steady won't you

Good luck and welcome back!! I am sure that you will feel like skipping some of the weeks once you get up and running again - try not to. There have been many of us on here that have had to rest up again with over usage and a mixed bag of pressure and pride. Take it easy and we look forward to hearing of your second journey. Wishing you all the best and happy running!
