Getting back in the stride

My feet are feeling good and I am slowly getting back into the groove of running.

I started with a gentle 2.5 km lope around the block, then bumped into up to a 5.4 km run.  It all felt good.

So good in fact, that I rejoined my 1/2 marathon training group.

We jogged out to a flat road mostly devoid of traffic and ran back and forth between 200, 400, 600 and 800 meter markers.  The first time to a marker was at a moderate pace and then flat out on the way back.

On the final leg I decided to keep pace with some older ladies who were much fitter than me.  They chatted nicely at the end.  I gasped for air and had flashbacks to childhood memories...

It was then a gentle jog to get back home.  Well, that's what I thought.  Turns out I should have ran back to when I had parked the car... Oh well.  Another kilometre or so on the end of a ten km run isn't much.

Tomorrow morning it's a long 15km run with the running group.  Wish me luck
