Happy New Year to all on the forum.
Tonight I went out for my first run in more than 3 weeks. I was floored by a nasty cold/cough type lurgy in the build up to Christmas, many of my plans for the festive period didn't happen, including Christmas Eve/Day Parkrun. I coughed so much that I pulled a muscle in my abdomen
I managed to get to my usual Aquafit class on Wednesday, but it wasn't until yesterday that I really felt more or less 100% back to normal. I decided to to get out for a run tonight (I usually run on a Saturday) but I really didn't know how much I would manage after such a long break, and being under the weather. I decided to take it very easy, not to push myself, and see how far I got. In the end I had a much better run than expected. I did 25 minutes at a steady pace, and the ankle that I hurt towards the end of last year held up really well! No pain or swelling. I can't tell you how much of a confidence boost tonight's run was. Onwuards and upwards!
I ran with MapMyRun! Distance: 4.33km, time: 25:33, pace: 5:54min/km, speed: 10.17km/h.
