I admit it, I've been sulking again. So I've lost motivation, and energy, and contact with this group. But this is not a miserable, griping post - this is a post to thank Sara, who posted that she'd had to step away for a while and missed the group. This made me realise that I had done the same.
Brief summary - I somehow damaged my hip, so I wasn't running for a while. Then I went away for a fantastic long weekend... then I took on a Christmas temp job which means that I can't choose the time for a run as easily... then I wanted to start again but icy pavements mean that's off the plan as well, until the promised heavy rain and storms arrive
Anyway, I had stopped congratulating new graduates, reading posts - even opening the daily email. Not good - but now, thanks to Sara, I am making an end-of-year resolution to post, even if I still haven't been able to run.
Hopefully I will be able to pick it up again soon. The roads around me aren't lit, so it's hard to run at night, and treadmills make me feel sick and dizzy - but I will get back out there! Hopefully my fitness won't have suffered too much, hopefully I could aim for a gentle 20-minute run, hopefully the weather will improve...
I'm looking forward to reconnecting on here - please look out for me as I comment on your inspiring and funny posts, or commiserate with you if you've had a bad day. We are all doing great things on this programme, from those of us who are summoning up the courage to go out there for the first time, to those of us who are experiencing difficulties through injury or motivation, to those of us who are training for half-marathons (wow!). Go us! - and here's hoping for good runs for you all, wherever you are
