Bridget C @runningmum

Well, the decision to get fit and healthy is still one of the best decisions I have ever made and running is now one of my favourite things to do. My three young boys love to run and be fit too and my husband and I are running our 1st full marathon on May 3rd (he is NOT a runner so I had better win!!). Taking time out for myself and improving and challenging myself keeps my sanity in check and gives my boys a healthy example for their lives. Right now my single goal is complete the marathon but I will be making new goals regarding more strength and speed once I am recovered :)

Thanks Brad, was tough at the end, been a long time since I've done that distance!! Hows your training going? Any events coming up?

I did the Hutt city tri last weekend, 500 metre swim, 20k bike ride and 5k run, of which I only managed one 2.5k lap due to my ongoing foot issues, so I am planning a visit to a specialist before round the bays!

Bridget C and Eunice Y encouraged this.

Great work on the Tri even with a disappointing run, I wish I had checked my ITB issues out earlier than I did and would def go back to the specialist if needed next training season, hope it works out well for you :)

Thanks guys, it is tough getting back into it physically, not quite recovered, but I know I'll be back to normal if I keep trying slowly. @candidab Yes I've heard it before and yes I need reminding again :D Was pushing it too hard trying to meet challenges through October and it's actually nice to now have them out of reach and just do what feels right for me and my body right now. No plans until the last week of December when Marathon training starts again eeek!
