Leaving the injury couch!

It's been two weeks exactly since my last run, and finally I felt like a run was possible after injuring my ankle. Just a short one, slower than usual, but my ankle seems to be holding up ok so far. It's a start...

I ran with MapMyRun! Distance: 3.63km, time: 23:33, pace: 6:29min/km, speed: 9.25km/h.

I've spent the last two weeks watching other runners enviously (something I never thought would happen!) so I'm happy to have got through the run. I won't be pushing it though!

Being on the IC is just miserable, isn't it?! Seeing runners everywhere you go and being desperate to get out there yourself. Take it slow and steady now you're back and fingers crossed no more injuries for you.

I hadn't appreciated how many runners there were in my area until I started Couch 2 5k. It's nice to be back among them! Slow and steady is exactly how I plan to take things :-)

I know, I was the same - I see the everywhere now! It also made me realise when I was self conscious about running outside that no one notices me except other runners (I never noticed runners until I started running) and other runners are fine because they understand exactly what it is I'm doing!
