After getting to week 7 and completing a 5k event in May, I had a minor sprain and stopped running. My injury took just 3 weeks to completely heal, but I just couldn't get back into running, which is too bad as it's been long enough now that I've completely lost all the gains I'd made, except for the knowledge that I can do it!
Well, yesterday morning, I did W1R1. I'm back at it! Not sure what really inspired me to start, but a break in the heat we've been having certainly helped. I'm in Canada and we've been having a really hot summer where I am. I laid my gear out the night before, set a second alarm on my phone and left it in the bathroom, so that it would wake my kids up if I didn't hop out of bed to disable it before it rang.... and those tricks worked to get me up and moving before my brain could start listing reasons I shouldn't run.
Here I go again!
