Been a while !

Not ran since end of August. Been far from ‘couch’ as Pasco the 6 month old pooch has been keeping me active as has the theatre show I was involved in half term ( 70s disco numbers get the heart racing 🙈) but none of it running. So today was the day I stepped out to test the waters. Only did just over 2k in 16 mins but enough to start with . Pleased heart and lungs felt fine; legs did start to wonder what had hit them but reckon I can build up well from here. Hoping to join the local running club but just need to get back a bit more fitness first. Hope you’re all happy running!

Course you can build on that! Steady, bit by bit, you'll be back up to 30 mins before you know it. Good luck with the club 👍🏻
