Getting back out there - to the polls!

LisaRose74 profile image

For one reason or another I've not been out running much lately, nor been on here either. It's a vicious circle as running helps me so much mentally but when my brain is fogged I struggle to find the motivation to get out there. Anyway inspired by stories of great runs on here I went back out tonight. Off track a bit from C25K, I have been on the programme since September last year, I just went to run for as long as I felt comfortable. So I walked to the polling station, put my cross in the box and then ran the long way home. Didn't have a phone or watch with me so no idea how far I went or how long for! It was probably only 15 minutes running but it felt good to be back. Now I will try and get back out there regularly and get ready for week 7, finally! Looking forward to catching up on what everyone has been up to 😀

Nice! I ran to the polls when we had an election last year. I was a hot sweaty mess - your plan was much better. It's great to incorporate running into your errands - you have to do them anyways, might as well run while you're at it.

Yes you can't beat being efficient with your running!

Good on you for getting out there, especially if you've been on a break! 15 minutes sounds like a solid piece of running. All the best for week 7!

It's good to be back out there, even if it was a bit warm 😀
