I've missed that post run rush!

To anyone who worries about losing fitness after time out: I've just done my 4th run after 6 or so weeks of assorted injuries, new and old (when will I learn?!) getting in the way and have gone from 1.1 miles last Tuesday to 2 miles today and slightly increased my speed. Not where I was before I started showing off but soooo much better than when I started on May 16th. Which is nice.

Happy running, peeps.

It is lightweightkate, it is. I hadn't realised how much I want this to be a long term thing :-)

Thanks, SlowWorm2016! I think I'm beginning to learnt the value of stopping while I've still got something left in the tank and not listening to that voice that says 'Really? You're stopping NOW???'.

Thank-you davelinks. Beginning to learn the necessity of that if I want to keep doing this. And I do!

I've found that I cannot give it up because of the enormous benefits of my running. Well done for getting back in the saddle !

Glad you are back and making progress. The post run rush is fab isn't it. Would I go to all that effort if it wasn't? Possibly not :-D Happy running :-)

Thanks. I know what you mean! I was lucky that it got me from day one! Rather relieved my legs feel ok this morning, too... - yesterday evening was a tad achey! Happy running to you too (stupid machine won't do smiley faces - must be to early).
