Well I am out of my usual environment this week, staying with a friend as I prepare for a surgery on Thursday (which looks like it now won't happen due to some complications with the medicine I've been taking and some fairly useless doctors). Therefore haven't been able to run around the lounge and was thinking I'd just have a little break from running until the surgery. However today I just felt I needed to do something, feeling very stressed and fed up. So I went to the local gym and they have given me a free 7-day pass. I ran on the treadmill for the first time, it certainly beats running around corners in the lounge! What I was a bit sad to note though, is that my "running" is only 5km/hr. For a bit I managed 5.2 or 5.4 but mostly 5.0. According to the internet this is actually just very fast walking! I know speed is not the focus right now. I am just looking for inspiration from others who were perhaps at similar speeds to me at this point, who are now much better? Anyone out there?!
