I Didn't Give Up (Read 905 times)


    I took up running again after a fairly long absence after recently moving to London. I've never been a big runner as my weight and bad knees have kept me from really getting into it. I did fairly well, but took a week off last week mainly because I was feeling lazy. Historically, that would have meant the end of running for me for about 6 months...a body at rest and all that (especially with a pint in one hand)...however I got back out tonight after work and did my normal run at about my normal pace and REALLY enjoyed it! In the last month, I've had a few running "firsts" - my first week running 4 days, my first week running more than 10K, my first time really understanding what a good run feels like... Big grin

    I run for Fried Chicken!

      Congrats! It really does get easier. Soon you'll be doing 10k runs like nothing!
