1st run in 2wks (W4R1)

So between, house moves, school hols & sickly kids it’s reall been nearly 3wks since my last run.

I thought I may have to start again but decided to give my next race a shot first.

To my complete amazement, it was my best race yet, I finished the race rearing to go again, what! This never happened before, not tired, no tight calves or sore feet? Amazing.

This was yesterday & this morning there’s still no reminders (soreness). So I’ll keep up & hope to finish in 2018. 1 guess walking 5-8miles 5x weekly was useful in some way.

Keep it going people!

Well done.

Your physical condition does not evaporate overnight and certainly not in two weeks.

The rest often has benefits, as you have witnessed.

Keep running, keep smiling.

Great comeback run... well done deciding to just go at the next run. Rests are good as long as not too often, I know a couple of runners who’s PB at parkrun came after a holiday. Walking is always gonna help too. Enjoy your next one.
