I didn't run at all last week as I was away hill/mountain walking and didn't fancy running in that terrain ... it's very flat in my part of the country so not used to any incline! So felt quite nervous about my run this morning. When I woke up I could see it was windy so that was another aspect to worry about. Since I started c25k in February I have only taken one rest day between runs so a whole week without running seemed a long time. I set off very slowly, and must have slowed down some more during my run but I DID IT. Am so relieved that I can still run for 30 mins without stopping.
So any of you who need to take extra rest days take heart you don't loose your fitness that quicklly.
It's been great to get back to reading the forum ... welcome to all the newbies and well done to all the graduates, lots seem to have happened while I've been away. Now time to get back to regular runs to keep in shape for my big birthday and holiday walking at altitude in four weeks time.
