Week 1, Run 1 done

Done my first run. My OH is a parkrun ED and I volunteer regularly - felt like I should put my money where my mouth is when cheering others on and crack on. I've also recently torn my ACL but just been cleared to exercise again. Found Run 1 not too bad - as long as I slowed down the run sections. Now the challenge is keeping it up with a toddler to look after. Anyone any tips for hip flexor tightness?

Excellent well done you no tips on exercise though. But just wanted to say brilliant and good luck with run 2



Might be useful!

Well done you and welcome! Good on you for getting out there and with a toddler too... I just got back from a lonnnnnnnnng walk/run with my nine month old granddaughter.. she slept!

Slow and steady does it... :) Keep to that all the way through...it works... Are you going to run with small one in a buggy... or is it going to be a solo, just for you running time:)

Well done, go as slow as you need to, or as fast as you have to to catch your toddler.

Have a look at this greatist.com/fitness/stretc...

Thanks all - not running with the toddler at the moment - getting myself round is enough! Hip is pretty painful tonight. Will have a look at those stretches!
