Wow! I had a fabulous run this morning, completely unexpectedly. I’ve been a bit disheartened recently, running less often and less far than a few weeks ago, but today I went on an adventure, running routes I only vaguely know, got a bit lost a few times and just kept going. I did two 30 minute runs back to back ( the NRC app times you) and then a bit more, then a bit more, and could have kept going but I was about to be late for a girls lunch and needed time for a shower so I jumped on a tube home. When I added it up I had run 10.9 k ( with lots of road crossing and little pauses, but including gentle hills). I found I was actually enjoying myself!! So don’t despair, anyone who’s flagging, 5 months ago I couldn’t run for 30 seconds without pain, and this morning was amazing fun!!
