Couch to 5K

Well, that's more like it ...💦🏃🏻💦

After a 10k run which felt harder than usual on Friday, I really enjoyed my 5K pavement pounder early this morning! I haven't run before breakfast for a while but it was lovely to be out on the quiet of the local roads before most people were up and about (must run early more often). It did, of course, rain on me, but that's ok too when the run goes well! I so need my runs at the moment, they are such a sanctuary for me  (if that makes sense?) amidst a lot of emotional "stuff"!  Hope everyone else has also enjoyed their Easter runs. Sadly I didn't see the Easter bunny on my travels as featured in Irishprincess's morning video!!🐰

Definitely makes sense, running is as good for the mind as the body

well done Sandra. I'm like you, when i make the effort to have an early run i love it but in general i'm an evening runner. I find the people i meet in the morning is always happier too than the end of day ones!!

I also like early morning run Sandra. Could not cope with anything after 9am. This running bug is really good

That sounds fab Sandra and I'm glad it helped to soothe your soul. I absolutely understand that. Running helps so much in sh**y times. Sorry you didn't see the Easter bunny though. Maybe he ate too many eggs and couldn't move much!
