Ready at last

First day back at work yesterday- woke up to a beautiful frosty day ❄

Came back from work tired but decided to go out for my W4-4 run before preparing dinner πŸ™‚ especially when as it was already dark and really cold- love it πŸ™‚

After 4 runs in different shoes and absolutely no pain in my shin I have decided to step up to W5 on Friday!!! I think I'm ready as I ran longer for the last 5 min stretch and again no discomfort.

  • That's fab! I'm re doing WK 6 from this evening, after a month off with a chesty cough. Can't wait to graduate!! :)

  • Good luck, you'll get there πŸ™‚ Glad to hear you're feeling better again!!!

    I got to the end of week 8 a year ago and then got bad shin problems, so restarted now but taking it slower.

    I would so love to get to the end, I've never been into running, but can walk for miles on the moors.

    I've discovered that running at the end of a stressful day at work does wonders - my family think I'm mad mad when I go out in the cold and wet, but I always come back 'refreshed' 😁

  • Well done :) I do like dark, cold runs - at least, once I get out there and get started! Glad the shin pain seems to have gone too - onward and upward now :)

  • Thank you πŸ™‚

    I'm hoping that by spring I might be ready for some running on the moors. The rest of the family play cricket and the pitch is on the moors, so a weekly golden opportunity to avoid the boredom (and temptation of a sneaky pint of cider!!!) and get out there πŸ™‚

  • Oh that sounds idyllic! :) I do love my countryside runs in the spring and summer sunshine (as long as it's not too hot!) ;)
