Hi to you all... I have not posted here in some time, just quietly lurking and reading through all your inspirational stories. I got over my hamstring injury but had to go back to week 6 or so to become a 30 min runner again. I have now done about 9 park runs ( which I love) and am still running more or less three times a week. I am even going to run ( or more likely run/ walk ) a 10k in November. However running in the dark ( I get up early to do so) has its own perils and I tripped and fell over a loose paving stone this morning. Managed to bruise myself and have a very sore skinned arm. The point of all this drama is this though... last year I also had a fall ( another loose paving stone , yes I am clumsy!) During which I broke 2 ribs and a wrist . This year nearly 2 stone lighter and a dam site fitter all I got was bruises and bit of skin missing. I was also able after a bit of a breather to get up and finish my run.
I think that all the excercise has made me both lighter and tougher. Thanks to you all for the encouragement to keep on going ... this running lark works!
