Couch to 5K

Happy enough...

with a VERY slow 5k, after 23 days of not running at all. Enough in the tank for more - physically and mentally - but mindful of the thin line between challenging and injured decided to stop after a lollop in the lovely, and very welcome, sun.

Sounds lovely pollyp1, and very sensible too!🙂 Such a beautiful day for a lollipop in the sun! I had planned to run today myself but had an achy ankle this morning ( did a lot of walking yesterday), so have postponed until tomorrow. Am having a small surgical procedure(😮) in a couple of days, so will be having a short break from running, although hopefully not for too long.🙂

It was thanks. I'm learning sensible (who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?).

Good luck with the op. Hopefully you won't be out for too long but even small procedures can knock the wind out of you - slow and steady...

Take care of yourself Sandra. Even little ops take a while to bounce back from x

Yeees. And the sense of excitement as I unlocked the front door to leave made me realise that I do still want to run. Always x

Such a relief to know I still want it, rather than just I should do it!

Oh that sounds gorgeous Polly. Today was a good one for a little lollop and it's good you managed a 5K after that length of absence. You can now run toward the sunset........🏃🏃🏃🤗

It was gorgeous, thanks. More so in the woods than on the pavement, but gorgeous none the less! I love the idea of running into a sunset (but I think I'd like to do it somewhere prettier!)
