I miss running, I haven’t ran since I got pregnant with MissB early in 2009. Before this I’d been running regularly and enjoying it for a couple of years. I’d ran 10k races (never with the hope of winning as I’m not a fast runner) and I’d entered the Great North Run in 2008. Unfortunately on my last training run the week before I went over on my ankle after 11 miles and so I ended up sitting out and waiting for my hubby to finish the race that year. My place was deferred but in 2009 I was pregnant, and in 2010 I was pregnant again. 2011 was a manic year and so I never entered but in 2012 I’m back
I’ve been given a GNR place, running for blood (more news to come on this soon) and so the training needs to start again. I’ve dug out my hubby’s garmin forerunner and I’ve got a new pair of running shoes so I’m all set My new shoes are vivobarefoot shoes as I’ve been reading a lot about barefoot running recently and I’ve decided if I’m going to give it a go, I might as well restart my training with a new running style. I used to get knee problems before and I’ve read barefoot running could help this so we will see!
I’ll be logging my progress on here, I’m just about to set up a new Running page so I can keep it all in one place I’m excited! I miss running, I miss feeling fit and I miss the freedom of just putting on a pair of shoes and running the tracks. 14 weeks to get myself up to half marathon fitness? Can I do it? We shall see
