Getting back in the saddle....... or even my running shoes

Training has been a little hit and miss recently. If I got out for a run or a cycle once a week I was doing well. So it was with some trepidation that I agreed to do the Kells 5k run on Bank Holiday Monday.
Hey, even thinking about doing it was a step in the right direction!

It was brilliant to meet up with these two, Lucy and Chris.Meeting up with them helped me remember how good running made me feel.

 So off we set.
 I had planned on running for two minutes and walking for two. But I got so caught up in the atmosphere I was soon running for three and walking for one. I then encountered a problem that I don't remember having to deal with last year. It was nearly too HOT to run! Seriously, it was the sunniest weather I can remember. It had been kinda drizzling when I was leaving home this morning and now the sun was splitting the stones. I was furious with myself that I forgotten my sun screen.
 Thankfully the end was in sight and I ran over the finishing line. It was one of the hardest and slowest runs that I have done. It's unbelievable how unfit you can get without training for only a few weeks. But I've gotten my mojo back.

And sure, isn't that the main thing!
