Having graduated a few months ago, i have another graduation run to look forward to next week. Thanks to stupidly running into a rather solid fence (dont ask..it was dark..i swear the fence moved and jumped out at me...im stupid) and getting rather bruised ribs for a reward, i had to give running a miss until i could move/breathe without it hurting. This week whilst not fully recovered running has proved less painful than turning when lying down, so im back in the game. First run i went back to intervals, with 6 mins, 5x1mins with recovery and an 8 min to end. Yesterday was 20, so plan is hopefully back to either 25 or the full 30 on the next run. Watch out for solid objects on those mean streets everyone!

Couch to 5K
Those pesky fences move pretty quick when no one is looking.
I will add an extra note in this guide to post C25K running healthunlocked.com/couchto5... advising that running into fences should be avoided.
Keep that comeback slow and steady.
I’m sorry, but that did make me laugh until the injury bit. Welcome back. I’m watching out for these ninja fences, who’d have thought it?
I have since scouted the area where the imcident took place...and tbh have struggled to identify the culprit/how the hell i hit it full on in the sternum, so ive gone with the ninja theory. Took me a week before i could laugh at myself without it hurting!
I slipped a few years ago on a slope, twisted as I fell and managed to punch myself full in the chest as I hit the ground... broke 3 ribs... months of pain. Don’t think I could deliberately hit myself hard there if I tried
Lovely to have you back in one piece ! Stay safe out there x
Not what you're looking for?

years ago and found I LOVE running - went on to run cross-country and fell-running up to half...
early on today 👀 I KNOW it's not about how fast you run (no fear of that right now!) or how many...
between, so am hoping 3 repeats of each run and then moving on is still ok. We shall see.
beach. I am tempted to get some pepper with me for next run. But where to carry it?
and did a nice 20 min run, but even after 2 weeks I needed a couple of walking intervals - fitness...
