Back to running...phew!

I woke up this morning and decided that today was the day to go running. So at 8.15 am I was up and dressed, had a glass of water and headed out. My plan was to walk for a while to warm up my achilles and then run. I did exactly that!

The day was overcast and quite cool and I stretched well before I started to run. I felt surprisingly good, which was nice and ran slowly in a loop. I only did about 0.76 miles, but I decided that I would rather start slow and leave myself wanting more, than do too much and regret it. I was pleased at how easy it felt and by how much I actually enjoyed myself!

I stretched well when I finished and now feel rather smug and definitely pleased that it went so well. I am planning to play football later on - again with lots of warm up and stretching.
