First run after returning to work
October 21, 2017
It’s hard to believe that my maternity leave is over and that I’m back at work. I’m now working a compressed week (8-6pm, Monday-Thursday), which means that I’ll still have some free time during daylight hours when I’ll be able to cycle/run. I’m also intending to make use of my lunch breaks to do some training – especially as my colleague, Sarah, will be training for London marathon.
We kick-started our training by going for a lunchtime run on Thursday. I can’t say it was a speedy run as we’re both a bit out of practice, but it was good to have a run and a chat.
Today, despite the dire weather warnings about Storm Brian, Southampton parkrun went ahead, so I was able to take a step closer to my 250th parkrun.
I’m feeling so unfit at the moment that my result wasn’t too bad, but I hope that I can get myself back to a 25:XX time in the near future.
Tomorrow, a lot of my friends will be taking part in the Great South Run. Today’s events relating to GSR have been cancelled, so I hope the weather is kinder tomorrow. I’ll be getting wet whatever the weather as Stu and I are going to take Baby M swimming!
Are you racing this weekend?
