It’s been a while

Ssasqueen profile image

I completed C25K way back in June 2019... I carried on and a 10K back in November 2019... i enjoyed park-run and I even carried on running through the first lockdown - but then I got injured and slowed down, then I just pretty much stopped running in January 2021...

So 8 months later I’m a stone heavier and finding myself out of breath walking up hills.

So I’m getting back to it - run one week one tonight after work ... and park run/walk on Saturday

Posted on here in an attempt to make myself accountable and start again. I miss running. I miss being fitter. I bet it will be raining as I finish work...

I’ll keep you posted

Yes! good plan and welcome back. A few of us have done it and it has been easier second time as you know you can do it. We've got your back, keep posting :-)

Yep - definitely easier - glad to be back - possibly wouldn’t have done it if I hadn’t posted

I was like that first time, had to post every day. Hu kept me running and I’m so grateful for it :-)

Didn’t realise you’d stopped! Great that you’re back. Shame you’re going to cause it to rain, but it’s been really hot for running, so maybe some refreshing rain will be better? I found it easier 2nd time round. Have fun 👍🏃🏼‍♀️

Did it! It was definitely much easier than 1st time and felt good to be out - the light rain was lovely

Well done for moving onto the 10K that’s something I couldn’t do. Sorry to hear about your injury. Welcome back and good luck with restarting. I’m on week 8. 3 years after graduating. 💜🎉

Welcome back Ssasqueen! You know you’ve taken that hard first step and you know what you’re in for! Go you!

I did it. Definitely feels good to be out and moving

I wouldn’t have gone if I hadn’t posted on here first! So thanks all

Good luck on your return to running 👍 Accountability is a great motivator 😀

It's one of the reasons why I write up almost every run I do. The only exception was the weekend before last when I had to summarise two runs due to being away from home and busy.

Good luck and welcome back 🙏
