In a nutshell, I started running (OK, jogging) a few years back and absolutely loved it - Im not a fast lass but I enjoyed it thoroughly and managed to inspire quite a few friends to start running. My fastest 10k was 63 minutes.
Anyway - injured my back last September and finally gave up running in December when my back pain started to effect my running.
Had treatment over last 8 months, its better now, although it will never be 100%. I have managed to gain a whopping 1 and a half stone. So with the all clear of my osteopath I can start again - but she just warned me to take it easy like a cadburys caramel (ummmm, chocolate).
So tonight is my 1st jog/walk in the hope I can recapture that love of the evening jog that I used to lust after. Im glad the nights a drawing back in as I am so very very concious of how I look.
I have recharged by Garmin Forerunner (God how I loved that gizmo) and its ready to roll. Dusted off my Asics,washed my Ronhill kit and put new batteries in my red LED flashy thingys.
Just thought I would say hello and hope to join you all in your daily updates and general chit chat if thats OK.
