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 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!

That was no good Bridget, I am battling a chest infection too, the one I managed to avoid from hubby, just before the Melb Marathon

Sorry you are sick too Jane but I am glad you at least got it after the marathon! Hope you are on the road to recovery, I'm finding my body is not quite right yet so taking it very easy while trying to get back into it at the same time, good health to us both very soon xx
