Well I have to admit that it's been a few weeks since I last went for a run. I managed to get to W3R1 I think (maybe R2). Then I got married, went on honeymoon and finally got a virus which really put me of out action for 10 days or so.
So I finally made it out for a run today. Week 3 R1 again. And despite all my worries about having 'lost it' and feeling fatter and unfitter than before, and actually still having quite a chesty cough on me...it was ok!
My legs were feeling pretty heavy by the end, but I was really surprised with how well I managed to do. I remember before I did any of the week 3 runs that the thought of running for 3 minutes (!!) absolutely horrified me. But now it doesn't seem that bad. And I wasn't even counting down the seconds - in fact I was quite enjoying it.
The moral of this story is, even if you have a few weeks off, it's never too late to get back into it. All is not lost!
I've got the next run planned in for Friday after work. I actually prefer running in the cold and rain so this season suits me. I aim to be running 5k comfortably by Christmas. Easy eh?!
