I've been champing at the bit to get back out there, but I was under the weather for most of last week, and then otherwise engaged the last couple of evenings.
Today I was feeling a bit bleurgh, but when I got home tonight I found the Slideman had gone out today to finish his week 2 despite feeling awful. So, inspired by this epic effort, I bit the bullet and headed out to complete my Week 2 (B210K).
Only too aware that it had been 10 whole days since my last proper run, I set off determined to take it slow and easy and just maximise my chances of getting to the end of it. And I did!! I even added a minute or two at the end, to finish on a nice round 6.5K in 48:30. I'm happy with that!!
As I was walking home on my cool down walk, I got overtaken by a succession of people obviously in some kind of running club. Most of them thought I was one of them, and several shouted encouragement as they passed, or asked if I was OK as I was walking. They laughed when I said (not too smugly, I hope) that I'd finished my run, and I hope theirs went well. But I love the fact that so many strangers were concerned enough to check I was OK. Runners are a nice bunch!!
Week 3 starts on Saturday. Bring it on!!
