Well after weeks of sleepless nights and the Cardiff Half Marathon constantly being on my mind itโ€™s come and gone.

I was the most nervous I have been in my life and the first few kilometres scared me witless. The sheer number of people and the pace was truly daunting. But we settled down and did it. At the end I was so emotional and had a little cry and the best cwtch off my wonderful husband who was wonderful and kept me going through the half with a smile on my face

This was my first run of any capacity ever after finishing c25k in June but there was method in my madness as didnโ€™t want to be scared by distance so thought letโ€™s just go for it.

So to all of you who do this regularly and full marathons I salute you as your all amazing!!

My body is now screaming at me what have you done to me today but the smiles say it all..๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ๐Ÿค—โœ…

Thank you so much, must admit I am sore now. Even my hair hurts when I washed it ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ sorry to read about your injury. Hope your out and about again soon x

It's a long way to run - not surprised it hurts! Look after yourself and rest and you'll feel better ๐Ÿค—

I've been given a recuperation plan for my injury and I'm now pain free when walking so can start some exercises tomorrow. Going to take my time to make sure it heals properly and am thinking of training for a half marathon as it will be a good way to build my endurance and reign in my temptation to run too fast! ๐Ÿ˜

Well good luck and if you do decide to sign up for one, I can highly recommend Cardiff ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I think Iโ€™m going to go back and do a bit of c25k again to build up my stamina short term again as think I got so fixated on the half I let the shorter runs slip.

Iโ€™ll keep a look out for your progress ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

That sounds like a great plan! I'll do probably do Hastings half as it comes right past the end of my road! It's notoriously hilly though ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Thank you so much Myrar, hope all is well with you? Itโ€™s been a slog at times but yesterday all those steps helped me achieve a massive ambition and it was so worth it. Even ended up catching the sun in sunny South Wales ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ.. itโ€™s a cliche but if I can do this anyone can, truly!!

Well done a HM is a hell of an achievement and you should rightly be proud of yourself. Recovery is important too, so treat yourself to a nice bit of R&R. Embrace that couch for a day or four!

Thank you!! Luckily Iโ€™d booked today off which Iโ€™m glad about as a tad stiff but all worth it and going to indulge in a nice bath later with Epsom salts. ๐Ÿค—
