Well I took my shiney new shoes out yesterday for their test run. (Thank you all for your comments and approval of them in my last post.)
For the last couple of weeks I have had problems with my foot so hadn't been out for a week. I was hoping I'd had enough rest and being very impatience to be out there again I ignored the little doubts and the voices in my head that told me I wasn't quite ready.
I managed the first run of 5 minutes however admitted defeat at the end of the 8 minute run. So...... this morning I had a stern chat with myself and have decided to go swimming in place of running until all is well. At least that way I will still be exercising and hopefully will continue to build stamina.
I will be back running when fixed (I have to after paying out for new shoes).
Does anyone know how long I can rest without having to go back to the start of the programme?
