Back to the beginning

And I was doing so well. Then stuff happened. Then work happened; and winter and Christmas and stuff. And weather And I suddenly find that I haven't run for 2 months and didn't run much in the month before that.

So, here I am reporting that I did run this morning but not for 30 minutes but back to W1D1. I hope I will be able to fast track through the weeks to get back to where I was last September at a regular 30 minutes and occasional 40 minute 5k.

It was good to be out this morning. I'm glad to be back.

You will do it and having seen the weather here, I can understand the break. Well done you on having another bash


Thanks to jan and Elfe for your encouragements. What I would like is for this session to build on the last time - I know I have more stamina than before and hope that will aid in developing more speed this time around. I know speed is a minor part and I am certainly not focussing on that but, well, you know...


Hi the stamina is the major part I think, if you have a starting bank of stamina it really helps, building it from scratch is a tough job to do. But we are here and look forward to reading your exploits, wind, rain hail, sun (hopefully) or just English grey

Good luck!


Welcome back- bet you'll enjoy it more second time. 😃


Nice to see you back. It’s really hard to keep at it with life and weather and dark. I think it is really important to (somehow) schedule the runs and make these a priority. (I don’t always manage this mind you!)

I am sure you will soon progress through the programme 2 months off isn’t that long. Good luck 😉


One thing I had forgotten about the process is the wonderful support in this forum. You are all lovely people. Thank you.
