Back to the Beginning

Just downloaded this little beauty, ready to start all over again now my wrist is out of plaster.

I’m not sure how brave I’m feeling, but I’m definitely missing running more than I’m worried about falling over while doing a few short intervals.

I definitely won’t be running attached to a dog in the near future though, I’m definitely not ready for those sorts of speeds. 🙂

I’m currently grandsprocket sitting, so I thought I might have a wander down to the local sports centre (it’s literally *waves hand in general direction of the Sportie* a few hundred yards down the street) and see if I can take advantage of a New Year, New You type deal to let me go and use their bikes and treadmills.

We've moved house, not sure if you knew that? Finding it difficult to get back to a routine with running, mostly walking with hubby, sister and doggies (lovely to be near family). Tendonitis still causing issues post runs which is frustrating and off putting 😕.

Thank you.

I don’t want to be injured again either, might try a bit of road running instead of my beloved trail mud.

Oh, what a horrible choice to have to make - safety or mud.

The trails are slippy and uneven at the moment, but roads hurt if you fall on them. Give me mud any day!

The mud round my way is mostly a thin layer over chalk, which is also hard, so I’m landing hard either way 🙄🙂
