well, I'm back. Slower, fatter and way, way too many bottle of wine later. So what happened?
A brief history in time!
Oct 17 2019 - started C25k..... Dec 21st 2019 - Graduated C25k.... Feb 29th 2020 - my last run before tonight.....
May 18th 2020 - a very slow 20 minute run.
In between Feb and now, I've had 2 bouts of sickness, one that kept me off work for 3 days. Its very rare I get sick and having time off work is unheard of.
I've had an awesome holiday in New York with my wife and daughter. Thank goodness we went when we did and got to spend time with my step daughter and my amazing grandkids.
Then then along came covid, and working what felt like 24/7 with a team of people, planning and implementing changes that would see around 10k people, across 5 continents move from working in a contact centre, to working from home, over around 6 weeks.
All of this meant running had to take a back seat. And I won't lie, seeing the amount of people on the street, running, cycling and dog working, meant i've delayed starting again by at least a week.
But I'm back. I aimed to try 20 minutes. I did it. Very slow. But its a start. And I reintroduced myself to Brian. For those who missed my C25k journey, Brian was my nemesis. A long steep hill that tried to break me on every run through the program. It brought back lots of memories as I took my slow run down, knowing I was going to have to make my way back up.
So... tomorrow my legs will hurt. I'll struggle to walk... but Wednesday, I'll be out there again
