Getting back into it ... or 'the return of the plog-dog!'

Getting back into it ... or 'the return of the plog-dog!'

Well, having graduated last November, I then had 4 weeks off because of illness and Christmas (poor excuse but there it is!), got back into it in January, then had knee trouble so another few weeks off! Just getting back to it and then the plog-dog (who had become a proper jog-dog!) had puppies! 11 of them! So that put an end to jogging for the next couple of months (11 puppies are VERY time consuming and also very absorbing to watch :D ).

So now all 11 puppies are settled in their new homes and I've returned to the program. I'm just following the program again and am on Week 4 at the moment. I have been tempted to skip a few runs but know if I do I may get knee and hip problems again. So slow but sure it is ... this time I'm really hoping to keep it going once I get past week 9. At least I know which routes work for me and which pace works for me and also which aches and pains pass and which need rest.

So onwards and upwards - the only thing is my daughter has also taken up jogging and keeps stealing the plog-dog!

(plog = plod+jog, the pace and speed I seem to go at!)

Just wanted to check back in to this forum as I've found it so motivating before.
