Today’s run

I needed to encourage myself to go for a run today and it started off as a complete plod. Over the last 3 weeks my already fragile routine has fallen apart what with tapering, recovering and then last Wednesday I developed low back pain. I stopped running for a few days and concentrated on stretching but it hasn’t gone. On Saturday I decided to give Parkrun a go. To my surprise my back didn’t hurt at all whilst I was running but stiffened up quickly afterwards. I think I was a bit demoralised also by being 2 minutes slower than my PB.
So today I forced myself out. Plod plod plod through the village. Then I turned off into the fields and somehow my spirits lifted and I just kept going. I ended up taking the long route through the woods

There were bluebells and wild garlic and blades of really bright green spring grass. So far my back feels OK but I have booked hubby to babysit tonight so that I can go to yoga.
I hope you all have a beautiful place to run or walk in too!
Love mawil x


About mawil1

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.
