Finally Off the IC!

Good Day Folks,

It's been a wee while since I was on here last and furthermore since I last run. Well I'm happy to say that I am finally off the IC and managed to go out and run this morning.

Playing it safe I only went out for 15 mins and managed to get a run of 2km in. Needless to say my fitness levels are way out of the window. Back to 3x a week first for 15 mins, then 25, then 35.

Feeling a bit dissappointed now as I had wanted/planned to run home after work by the end of May early June, however I only have approx a months worth of running left before Ramadan begins. With nil by mouth between sunrise and sunset...I don't think i'll be running!!

Hope everyone is well, thanks for stopping by.

Saul.

You could run at sunrise during Ramadan. Or is that too tiring for the rest of the day? I fast 1 day a week and that's what I do - but I know there's a but of a difference between 1 day and a month! You eat after sunset though, don't you?

Glad you are feeling better...slow and steady is the only way back into it :)

Could you do a short brisk walk each morning, maybe after you eat at sunset? Just to keep you motivated ! :)

Can't remember how long it lasts. I would still run, you will miss it otherwise, especially after so long on the IC. Just make your runs short and easy.
