Couch to 5K

Short and sweet

A canicrossing friend volunteered to take my daughter's beagle out yesterday, as I haven't felt able to since falling over, so I went for a gentle run on my own while they disappeared into the wilderness with even more dogs and runners.

It was meant to be 10 minute jog, 3 minute pretty quick, 10 minute jog.

I'm not convinced my version of pretty quick was that much faster than my jog, but I think I did my best while feeling slightly nervous because the ground was frozen and slippy in places.

Well done for getting out there - I walked at times today because I didn't want to slip. I figured that some running (and some walking) was better than no running!!

Very sensible attitude.

You did well, and no mishaps!

I have to admit, icy conditions are the one thing that stop me running, or walking if I do not have to, having once, years ago, slipped and fallen.. Horrid.

I do like snowy conditions, particularly across my beloved fields and tracks :)

You probably did go faster, than you thought, well done and soon you will be out with your four-legged chum, again! :)

Sorry to hear about your fall (only just seen your earlier post!)and lurgy. I have been suffering too from a virus this week and last week a fall (hit by minibus door which knocked me over into my back!). So I am taking things very slowly! Hope you are back to full strength soon.

Owwww! That sounds nasty. Are you okay? Take care of yourself.

I probably did far too much this morning, but I don't think I've made anything worse.

Well done for doing the run (and staying on your feet - I'm starting to think there's an art form to it). Good that you feel able to run again! Hopefully no more falls for you.
