Not run 5k since March 10 and kept giving up at 3.5/4K albeit at a decent pace for me. So needed to break the mental block that I could no longer run that far. So chose one of my favourite not too hilly circular routes and knew it was going to be fine when I got to 3k and felt good. Also a big psychological boost that I’d be able to stop before the ‘big hill home ‘. After 5.1km I slowed to a walk and pounded up hill feeling smug. This running lark as much head as heart, leg n lungs!!
