After 2 weeks with no running because of coughing etc, I finally went out again today.
I was almost looking forward to it while warming up, doing lots of stretches and wearing my new running top. My last run was 28 minutes, but that was hard to reach and was a while ago, so I decided to run for 2x 10 minutes.
When I started my run I felt good, I quickly found a good pace and my music encouraged me (Foo Fighters!). The air was very cold and uncomfortable to start with, and I had to concentrate to breathe in through my nose. I did manage to inhale at least 2 flies - which I could have done without - but they were very small and encourage me to practice breathing through my nose more!!
After 10 minutes I did need a break and was feeling a little wobbly. I had a 5 min break, mainly because mapmywalk gives 5 minute intervals, and started to run again. After 5 minutes I was doing ok, but at the end of the 2nd 10 min run I was really tired and slightly nauseous. This soon passed on my cool down walk and I was very pleased to have done so well. It has reassured me that I can still do it after all!
I ran at a fair pace while I was out, and even overtook a couple of people. They were only walking, but still that's good for me!
