Good to begin to get back into the stories.
Alehouse, if anyone needs a model of sticking with it, I know where to point them. Glad you are, and hope the niggles and the chest and sinuses clear. I suppose they might, if this summer thing actually happened.
LMH - oh my. Which race, when?
Emzap - hope the medical issues aren't too grave.
Ditto for Alex. Worth getting it checked. You get either peace of mind or an explanation. Both are worth having.
Congratulations you lot - you did it!!
Did what, I hear you asking, well you may. You got me out the door, and round the 4+ mile loop.
Did I have time for an outing today? No, not really I didn't. And it was a bit risky, as I had a four mile walk as part of the end of the day (losing the summer research students in the woods ), and energy is chronically in short supply - so
I got to thinking, well, am I going to not post, or am I going to post that I welched out on day two or..
..was I going to do it anyway. 4+ miles, with speedier intervals, never very long, sometimes lengthening stride (probably not good for one, but I like it), sometimes keeping stride short but increasing tempo, never for very long, couple of hundred yards, just to get a little short on breath, to experience something other than standard dead slow flat footed plod.
It took an hour, and I needed a nap afterwards, but - I did it!
Thanks, all of you.
I'm only attempting to get out for three runs a week at present. Not a lot, but I might be able to stick with that. With luck fitness will increase and I will be able to manage more.
go well all.
