I'm so pleased with today. I had not run since late December after completing the C25K, for one reason or another I kept putting it off. Then I got it in my head that I had left it too long and would have lost all the fitness that I had built up and would have to start again. Again this led me to continually put off going for that initial run, almost for fear of failure.
So today I bit the bullet. I decided to just try and pick up where I left off and run for the 30 minutes as before. I have to say it was fantastic, it felt like I had hardly left it. My run was a little slower than normal and covered about 0.4 of a mile less distance than I would normally have covered on the same route within the same time, but I finished.
This has really given me new impetus to continue my journey. I hope anyone reading this, that is putting off getting back into running after a break can take a little inspiration and just get out there.
