Due to a few unforeseen circumstances I hadn't managed to run for 11days. As a recent graduate I was really worried that I would lose fitness and not be able to complete 30 minutes after missing so many runs.
So I plugged in my favourite music and set off with some trepidation. After my usual 5-10 minutes of feeling like my trusty asics are lead soled, I settled into my run and it was great. I felt really strong. I cruised through 30 minutes and even sailed easily up the big hill with minimal strain.
There was a temptation to keep running but I decided not to push my luck.
So there you go, if you do miss a run don't panic - maybe a little rest also does you good, or maybe I was just lucky!!!!!!?????!!!!
