I have posted sporadically on here since graduating in January as life has got in the way - it has also got in the way of running. I have also struggled with running since graduating, seemingly unable to run the 30 minutes I could when I graduated and sometimes just not having the energy to go out for a walk. But routine bloodtests at the beginning of April showed that I had lowish iron and B12 and my folic acid levels were through the floor and the doc immediately put me on multiple tablets to try and boost my levels - when she listed the symptoms they all fitted, particularly the lack of energy (which I just put it down to things being really hectic at school with numerous rehearsals and concerts!)!
Nearly a month later and I'm finally beginning to feel back to my normal self. And this morning I woke up, looked out at the weather and decided it wasn't a gardening day, but thought, I know - I'll go for a run!!
So I did! Went back to week 6 run 2 - 10 mins x 2 with a 3 min walk inbetween. It wasn't "easy", but it was doable. Came back home with a real grin on my face!!
Here's hoping that this is the start of getting back out there regularly - and maybe even heading towards a Parkrun in a month or so?!
