Went out for my first run in 3 weeks this morning (beautiful sunshine all be it a bit cold). Shins didn't hurt while running I can just feel a little soreness in my left shin but not sure if that's just in my mind, will ice it later anyway. I only did a 2.8k run just to see how things were but i noticed I struggled a little more with my breathing to start with and by the end my groins were sore which is alway what happens to me if I haven't run or increase my distance (it will be fine the next time I go out).
I must admit that I have done nothing in the 3 weeks I have not been able to run, not even gone for a walk or used the treadmill. In the last few days I have started to feel fat and depressed about that and can't believe I have been so lazy. So after coming back from my run i have decided to take up the 5 x 50 challenge. I certainly don't think this will be easy, what with work, two teenagers and other family commitments but I am ready for the challenge and it is only potentially 30 minutes out of my day.
I'm now part of the NHS C25k 5 x 50 challenge team and very proud of it
