Well, those of those who read my last blog will know how close I came to throwing the whole thing in. But I am pleased to report that today I went out on my virgin post grad 5K run and had a lovely time.
I revisited the some of the same course I ran on Sunday grad run to exorcise it of the bad vibes, and it was fun. But ruddy hard work. I have a penchant for off-roading, but I realised that the route was TOUGH - sandy paths to start - fine, woodland paths leading through muddy bits - getting rougher, a short hill climb and then a track through gorse, brambles and humpy ground which led to a field that had a foots width track across it and another one that was last season ploughed with overgrown trailing weeds that kept catching my ankles!!!!
I must confess it was more of a walk/run kind of run. But I had that lovely glow of achievement back, which is what I missed on Sunday.
Hope all my grad class are having a lovely week running - do keep us updated!!!
