So not ran for 3 weeks due to snow/ice/late Home from work etc. Oh and teenagers needing lifts!! But went out tonight as need to get back on it. Little pootle round the village couple of miles and wow I smashed 1 min off my best time a few weeks ago! Just proves the legs remember. Oh and my Christmas list includes long runners socks and gloves.

Many of my PBs have come after a break, as have some of my best runs.

It is good practice to have a weeks break every few months and you will come back refreshed.
