Today I did my third 30 minute run and my fastest ever time - I cant believe it!
I graduated back in June but lapsed after doing my 5k Race for Life run for 7 weeks. The lapse was a combination of injury, life & sheer laziness. It was so hard to start again. The hardest run was that first run after the gap, but as soon as I was out & running I loved it and couldn't wait to get out again.
I started at W5 and worked my way thru' - so to any one else who is thinking about restarting and finding it hard - just get out there. Even if you only run for 2 or 3 minutes, you'll remember how much you enjoyed it and the running craving will come flooding back.
Oh and my'fast' time, well I managed to do 4k in 30 minutes which for this tortoise is really fast! A wonderful birthday present for this 'oldie' - not quite past it yet...
