Sneaks in quietly...... sorry for my absence!

3 months ago some fractured ribs stopped my progress completely, wow don't broken ribs hurt?! I tried, a few times (probably too soon) to run again without success but am proud to say that I am now back to where I was. I ended up starting again from week 1 and in a strange way it was good to see how much easier it was than the first time, I probably could have started at week 3 or something but anyway, I decided to start from week 1 and am glad I did as it has helped my confidence a lot. And, today I completed Week 5 Run 3, the dreaded 20 minutes and it really wasn't too bad at all. I set out very early to avoid the heat and actually really enjoyed it. So, I'm glad to be back and I am looking forward to catching up with everyone! xx

Hello back!!! It's great to have you back :D

And you are again ahead of me :P

I was jumping off and on several times, so I decided to go back to week 1 and build up my confidence ;) I did my W3R2 yesterday. I am also training my dog, Lori, to run with me. So we started it very slow from week 1. She is not with me during EVERY run, but I try to do at least half of the runs with her.

It is kind of easier this time, although not all runs are nice, smooth, and without panting :P

It's good to hear from you, I run with my dogs all the time, one has to be on the lead so I have one of those waist belts leads and they are great, means I can keep my hands free. We will get there eventually I'm sure!
