Confirmed. Off the IC properly now

Having been on the IC for 6 weeks I came off it about 2 weeks ago. Thought I would be very much off it so took it steady with shorts runs and walks. Started on week 6 then moved up once all good.

So today at 410am I ventured out in the fog tomy usual running ground. Very darkbut with Laura in my ears I set off. Just before 5am I returned having completed a week 9 run with an average pace of 13min/mile. Felt so good to be back again and not have issues afterwards.

Looking forward to Sunday when I will be out again. However I might need some waterproof shoes soon as mine are not when running on wet morning grass.

Very, very well done... taking it steady is the right way to go. Sounds like a great run and no ill effects. :)


Welcome back and enjoy your return 🙂


That's great to hear - how nice to be back!


Wow. And I feel virtuous going out at 6am. Very inspiring.


A beautiful morning to go running this morning as it was a little light after the clock change.

Set out to do my 30 minutes around the field I run on. Used Strava to walk it a few days ago so now have it as a segment to see how I am doing. It says its a 0.2mile circuit and I did 9 in total doing each one with a few seconds each way of 3m50s, means I ran for nearly 35 minutes. If not for needing to go home to get ready for work would have done another lap or two.

Really happy that I have got back to it and able to keep to a pace that is fairly constant. Admittedly there are no inclines but my Saturday one has a long steady one that I do.

Roll on Thursday, might be a bit colder and crisp underfoot though in the morning for the run.
