Firstly, I can only apologise for my absence from the forum the last couple of months. There are so many unfamiliar names which only shows me how awful I've been for not visiting (but so very pleased that many more people have discovered the magic that is C25k!). I've thought of you all often and keep intending to catch up on the goings on of the forum and now I'm finally getting round to it!
I'm still running, having gradually built back up to 30 minute runs after my injury (with a few little setbacks owing to illness). The next goal is to slowly work back up to the 5k again and then see when we go from there. I had one of those fabulous runs on Friday which just felt great and I knew the only people who would really appreciate that is you lot!
The advice I'm seeking is how to keep motivated through winter?! I was so looking forward to running in winter but I'm being a real sissy about it and struggle to face the cold out there. SlowWorm reminded me to mention that I'm a late evening runner, the later the better, and have never been able to run in the mornings. I have thermal base layer leggings and top and a light rain jacket and have recently bought running gloves and a headband. I'm being ridiculous as, being on the South Coast, loads of you must run is colder conditions than me but I so look forward to the runs and don't want the dread of the cold outside to take away from that! I'm generally a 'cold' person anyway (temperature wise anyway - I like to think not so much in a personality sense!) so struggle to heat up and stay warm. Any advice welcome!
