It can be difficult post-graduation to remain motivated and with the dark nights finding time to run was proving to be difficult. So I decided to join the local running group. Turned up last night (new girl syndrome) and they were all very friendly and encouraging. I joined the slowest group (12 minute miles) and head off feeling anxious. I never thought I'd run 5 miles, and I know I wouldn't have done it on my own, but I'd recommend this as a 'next step' if you're finding the post-grad runs tricky.
