A new start

It has been almost a year since I was at my fittest, running 10-15km a week... Then I started medicine and forgot all about my fitness! It was not my intention, but days turned into weeks which turned into months... And then you convince yourself that it'll hurt too much to go for a run because you're so unfit... and so there you remain! I have been meaning to start again these holidays, but there has always been an excuse - the latest one that it's too hot! So when I woke up this morning and saw that it was overcast and cool, I knew had I run out of excuses!

So before I had a chance to second-guess my decision, I quickly put on my running gear and went out the door! I had decided to do Couch to 5K to get started, but realised that week 1 and 2 were probably a little TOO easy for me. So I started at week 3, day 1. It went well - It hurt, but I did it. I threw in some hills and managed to keep going...

Now I feel absolutely awesome! I had forgotten how good I feel after I run!!!! Why did I stop!?!!!!
