Well, Thank Goodness for That!

I can still do it!

I haven't run for over two weeks - a cold and horrible cough, followed by children and grandchildren (hurray!) here for the holiday, meant I kept putting it off.

So this morning I was determined to get out. But scared. How weird was that? Scared of what, I don't really know. That I had lost all the stamina? Probably. That my joints couldn't cope? Possibly. Too cold - no it isn't.

Anyway. Enjoyed the routine of getting ready - the clothes, the hat, Pick of the Pops, out you go.

And it was SO mild. Wow. Quite breezy - but the wind was actually warm. Lovely. I had decided to only do half my run - and the easy bit at that - before the hilly bit. And it was fine. Think I have lost a bit of stamina, but I kept going, and it was lovely. Came back into the house singing and dancing (yikes) to Thriller.

Very well done you...been bitterly cold with the wind here, today. I am glad you had such a great run:)

Always a bit nerve-wracking when we head out for the first time after a stop! :)

Very well done! You'll be able to pick up where you'd left in your next runs. Wish you a lot of other uplifing runs :-) like this one.
