Running at a Snail's Pace...

...but determined to get there in the end!

The one about not actually sticking to my training plan...and it is only DAY 1!

Okay, I have failed at the first hurdle. I had all intentions of getting up early this morning and going for an ickle jog around town, Ipod in tow...but having spent a bit of time at the A&E last night (luckily not me, but my poor husband who badly sprained his ankle on Monday night playing should be getting better, but it has swollen up like a big balloon), I just couldn't drag myself out of my pit this morning. This is not looking so good.

But, I mustn't be defeatest...instead I am going to write down my training plan for next week so that I have no excuses not to stick to it:

Sunday - 3 mile trot around the roads near my house
Monday - 1 mile swim
Tuesday - training session at the club (not sure what it is yet)
Friday - 4 mile jog

Yes, looking back at it now it looks tame...but remember I am only just getting back into it! I promise there will be more juicy runs and training sessions over the next few months!

    You have total justification not to run today. It's also early days so plenty of time for FLM!
    See you at Mile 17 where I will be with the other RW peeps supporting!

    Hey Snail's Pace, well done for getting in, I was knocked back in the ballot for the third year running.......still waiting for my bloody fleece but have got a charity place with the Stroke Association so now all I have to do is train for a marathon, lose 2 stone and raise 2.5grand.....piece of p*ss!

    Hope the 3 miler went well today..

    It's not tame at all
    You are planning your week.. and that is a zillion percent more than most of the population

    ..and you have to start somewhere.

    So... how did your run today go..??

    Cheers all - run actually went pretty well today...admittedly I was running off last nights over indulgence...but all in all it felt good to be back!

    Now how to do I link to all of your blogs? Bit new to all of this!
