I've been suffering from a selection of this season latest must have bugs....they've been horrible and meant that since the beginning of December I've only managed to get out 4 times
Well after suffering for so long I actually paid a visit to the doctor (why didn't I do this sooner) and got some anitbiotics and this morning I woke up feeling good! Woo hoo!!!
So I decided to go out and see how I got on...plotted a route before I went which meant if I was struggling I could amend the plan and knock a mile off. Won't say it was easy but it did feel good to be back out there and I managed 4.5k in about 32 minutes with NO walking, so not bad. I'm quite releived I've not lost as much fitness as I thought I would have...just need to build back up to 5 miles but am sure I'll be able to do that over the next few weeks.
I now can't wait to see what 2013 brings in my running journey....I'm going to look for a few 10k races and then maybe towards the end of the year aim for 10 miler.
