Hi all. Not been on for a while as felt too guilty. My last run was on 30th June. I've been meaning to carry on running but the main hurdle - the front door - has been in the way, coupled with a new job and all sorts of personal issues. Just excuses really I know.
Well, staying in Llandudno for 3 days this week and there is a lovely promenade, with a hill up and around the coast. I forced myself to go and run at 6:45. Well - I did it!!! I thought that, because of the length of time since my last run, I wouldn't be able to do 5k straight away, so planned for a 3k today, 3.5k on Thursday and go from there, back up to 10k, 3 - 4 times a week. Really surprised myself as felt fine this morning, did 5k (although not particularly quickly). No aches or pains (yet) as did a set of longer stretches at the beginning and end of the run.
Plan is for 5.5k Thursday, and on from there. On holiday in Lanzarote in October so, hopefully, I can get a few runs in there as well. Just need to keep myself motivated!
Happy running all.
