Yes I can!

Just a teeny weeny pat on the back for me because I finally ran out of excuses and went for a jog straight from the school run this morning. It was a bit slower than I'd like (7min25s /km) but that's 4.5 km more than I've run for 11 weeks so I'm enjoying the rosy glow of self congratulation! Thanks to all of you regulars who have inspired (and shamed) me into getting back onto my feet again.

  • Here's another pat on the back. Well done.

  • Great comeback, first time always the most difficult. What do u have planned for the rest of the week? πŸ˜€

  • You mean I can't wait another 10 weeks before the next one? Hopefully Thursday will see me plodding about town again so that I'm 'quest ready' when the next 6 week program begins.

  • Good for you! No excuses now for not doing the same again (and that pace sounds good to me!).

  • Thanks, I was hoping for closer to 7 min/km but I'm not too disappointed since I still feel pretty good 4 hours later. Onwards and upwards.
