Boxing Day run with my son...and so happy to be running again!

Out this morning for my first run in weeks following THREE viruses 😩 in a row including bronchitis and a horrible flu-like cold. I have really missed my running and set off today slightly apprehensively, not knowing how all that time off would leave me. Pleased that I ran a fairly comfortable 5k but had dropped my pace and took things very slowly! Also lovely to have my son running with me for some of the run ( he is keen to do more running this year) and just lovely to be out on my beautiful trails again!πŸ™‚πŸ‚πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ I was running up to 10 miles at the end of October but this dropped with lack of daylight and then illness. I feel as though I have a lot of work to do to get back to where I was, let alone up that distance another 3miles for a HM in March! Will just go steady and enjoy being back out there and if I'm ready for the HM then great. If not, that's ok too! Happy running everyone!πŸ™‚
