YES!!! Back in the game:)

I can't believe it.. I done it..feel amazed and amazing:)

 I wasn't atall sure how it would turn out.. if my knee was strong enough.. was I strong enough? Could I do this again? 

 Just had to go and find out.. didn't really have a plan.. so I just startec25k where I left off and began with w8r2.. with no great expectation..just see how I coped a step at a time.. 

It was tough but ten mins in and I was smiling to myself thinking.. I'm back.. I'm out..and I'm doing this..

Knee felt fine.. :) 

Then the battle music cut out to had to fight those gremlins alone.. got tougher.. but by now Laura says I was halfway:)   grimace..can I do this? My step sister died after a strong and brave battle with cancer at the new year.. it would have been her birthday today.. I ran through the rest of the run with thoughts of her courage all the way.. and somehow I got there:) 

Thanks for all your support,advice and listening to my moaning about being on the IC.. hopefully this time round I get to stay on track and reach my graduation.. race for life in memory or Ruth is early July.. I need to be there :)

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. It's amazing how thinking of someone else's courage and wanting to celebrate their life will keep you motivated. I have no doubt you'll do Race For Life in July.

    Oh, and welcome back from the IC :)

  • Thank you shivani.. x

  • Good to hear you are back on track Sparky. So sorry to hear about the loss of your step sister, but know she would be very proud of you.

    Im sure you will be graduating soon and running in her honour in July😊xx

  • Poignant day. My mum died 27 years ago today, long gone but never forgotten. It's difficult when birthdays and dying days come round but how wonderful that you took Ruth with you on your run and did it with her pushing you on. I'm sure that as long as you stay careful and steady you will smash her run in July :)

  • Thank you all.. off out to work now..HAPPY TO be back x

  • I'm sure today is emotional for you sparky and it's very healing that you have a RFL planned.  You'll be more than ready. It's great news you didn't have to spend too long on the IC. Lots of stretching and keep an eye on the knee. 

  • Fantastic Sparky ! Oh I am so pleased for you , you must be chuffed to little mintballs with that - fab stuff !

    Lovely touching words about Ruth , she mustve been smiling down on you today .

    Welcome back Sparky :-) xxx

  • Well done... looking good and feeling strong. :)

    What a birthday run... she was with you all the way I am sure. You are doing this and heading for a glorious Graduation. Big Hugx
