I belong to another running group and recently two of the members have lost their Grandmothers, so we as a group have dedicated our runs/races to ALL grandparents much loved, some still alive others passed away. Sadly I never knew any of mine but I am a Grandma of 3 wonderful children so I dedicated my run to all Grandparents and for myself and my return to running. So that meant I had to do a bit more than 5K which I only recently got back to achieving. So the mind was set to run slowly doing Galloway Method of intervals 60/30 (that's run 60 seconds walk briskly 30 seconds) This method I have decided is the best way to keep me out there injury free (I hope). Some would say that's cheating, I say its keeping me running after spending 1 year out due to injury.
I know there are many who suffer injuries and start to despair but be patient, listen to your body. If you keep getting injuries may be fast running is not for you, may be Galloway's Method would help you stay fit, be able to still get out there, and I know its a very enjoyable way of running as it means you can go further.
So here's my run
Happy running everyone
