Oh well, my plans didn't go as I wanted, and now I think I'll have to go all the way back to week one.
I'm also finding it hard to find the time now I'm back at work. The husband works shifts and I don't have other childcare so I can't generally run in the evenings, and I hate it then anyway because I'm tired, I much prefer running in the morning and now with work I can't unless I get up really early!
I went out today for the first time since 1 August. I had so many good intentions but the heat just got to me and I was on holiday and had late nights and wine and and and!!
But I went today, went back to week 6 day 2, didn't manage all of it, but it's something to aim for, I think I'll do week 6 day 1 and work back up. It'll be good to restore some base fitness, not that I had much to start with and was really slipping backwards, so I've had a good rest and now I'm ready to start fitting it in again.
I'm 48 and really only took it up consistently this year! I flirted with running many years ago - and only ever stuck to it for a couple of months at a time. Now I jog every couple of days and enjoy it.
I managed to get out again today and knocked out 4.5k, which I am pleased with. I've had so much going on in the last couple of weeks it's been hard to find the time - and I can't go in the evenings as the husb often works late shifts so there's no-one to child-care for me.
But I have my plans for the week and should be able to get out 3 times which will be good and hopefully can get a gym session or two in as well...
I don't mind running in the rain, it's the heat I can't cope with!
Goodness, I was tired this morning! I think I was restless in the night and I've got a shoulder problem, but I went for a short-ish run anyway, did 3.75k, and it was all done by 9.30, so I feel nice and virtuous!
No opportunity to do anything tomorrow as I'm going to a conference/workshop thingy but there's always the weekend!
