Wk7 R2 My last run was over a month ago argh!

Well I went for a run today, I have to admit I walked 5 steps at the top of the hill and 8 steps to listen to Laura giving me some advice on deep breathing.

There are mitigating circumstances, why I stopped running and I hope you can forgive me. The last week of June / first week of July I ran an English Summer Camp for Italian children. It is great fun, but I was too tired to run in the evening or morning.

Despite my month lay off, the run wasn’t too bad, I think because I was sure I wouldn’t manage to run it, which I managed (except the 13 steps)

Also here, if you stop running the pesky mosquitoes attack you.

Have a great summer

Good to see you getting back out there - I took 3 weeks off at week 6 and it wasn’t toooo bad getting back into it. Don’t beat yourself up about a couple of steps - you’ll be back on track in no time - plenty room on the podium

I thought running around after 24 kids would keep me fit...
