I have really been enjoying running ever since I began last November. I never thought then that I'd be regularly running for enjoyment 10 months later. I looked last night on my Strava and discovered that from March 22nd (my first 10 miles) to Sept 22nd I have completed longer runs of:
10m x 5
HM x 6
15m x 1
20m x 1
I just wanted to say that this in itself is just the result of going out, keeping consistent and really enjoying it. I haven't experienced yet the feeling of not wanting to run and my 3 or 4 times a week have been part of me and who I am now. Love running, love the forum and love learning tips and tricks along the way. Sometimes we go through ups and downs running and I'm really enjoying this spell. I've developed a liking for longer runs too as the weeks have passed. I don't really run fast or get many PB's but I just like the all round sense of well-being running brings.
I deleted this post loads because I didn't want it to be 'look at me' but rather if you keep at it and stay positive you can do some things you thought were out of reach or looked hard to overcome. I look forward to how other people have done and reading the forums is something really positive for me. It's an inner strength I carry with me each run.
