So last night, after a 3 month break, I ran for the first time with a group. Where I live there aren't any running clubs but in the new year I am moving house and there is a club not too far from where I'll be moving to. I decided to make the 30 min drive last night to check out the club and I am so glad I did. As I was running I was struggling, but I managed to (just about) keep up with the group. Today I am aching but I am newly encouraged to run regularly again.
I had a very good reason to stop running and all I will say is, Ladies, please don't run alone. My incident happened in broad daylight in the middle of the day (a Sunday) in a place I felt very safe close to home and I had my pooch with me. I was completely unhurt but I said I'd never run alone again (and my other half won't let me).
Being with a group was lovely, it was a mixture of all ages and abilities running to various levels. Although it was my first session with them last night I am hooked, will be joining officially and would recommend it so far.
Keep safe ladies (and GENTS!) XX
