I've struggled to managed my physical health since going on holiday earlier this month.

My goal is to run a 10k (6.2 miles) in June.

Race At Your Pace is a seemingly great organisation that gets people running. It's certainly helped me this month. I've not ran consistently (or basically at all) for nearly 2 years. Due to my holiday to Majorca earlier this month, I signed up to just 25 miles for the entirety of April - I'm currently at 17.57 miles, so I'm cutting it fine.

On my first run, I managed to do 2.69 miles running my usual haunt, which gave me confidence that I hadn't completely lost my technique. Although, my run was a sporadic, stop-start run, my time wasn't too bad at roughly 10 minutes per mile.

Since then, I've done several other runs, including a 4.36 miles run on a new route tonight. My timing is roughly the same, but I have much let stopping and starting.

Stopping is the hardest part. I've found if I stop, I find it much harder to start again - and not just in running.

I have 2 days and 7.43 miles to go.


I just can't shake the terrible, terrible acronym that it has; RAYP. Eek, that's er... unfortunate?

Anyway, regardless of this oversight. I've enjoyed getting back into running again.
