The physio gave me a new set of strengthening exercises yesterday, that shouldn't hurt my back. More importantly he gave me the OK to continue with C25K. In fact he said it was a brilliant way of getting back into running again. 😁
It's been raining all morning, still raining come my lunchbreak and a chilly 2 degrees. I put my kit on - to show commitment- and do my dynamic warm-up stretches anyway. Maybe it will ease up a bit?....
As I leave the house it's raining even heavier than before and as I enter the woods it starts to snow. Great big wet flakes. I must be a bit crazy, going out for a run in this weather! Unsurprisingly there is hardly anyone else about today - just a couple of hardy dog walkers, and no other runners.
I absolutely loved this run. I felt like Peppa Pig, splashing through the muddy puddles, a big grin on my face.
The first 90 second run was OK, but the following 3 minute run was harder than I expected and I was ready to walk again by the end. The next 90 second run was much better but the second three minute run felt a bit heavy and laboured though I could have continued on.
It's weird how second time round this is easier, yet harder than the first time.
