10 days ago I was challenged by @snufkins_girlfriend to undertake #forrestrun21 the idea being you have to get out and run every day for at least 10-15mins for 21 days. I haven't run much in about 5 months so I was a touch apprehensive but it's a good opportunity to train for an up coming trip so why not.
I found a 4km loop from my doorstep and set off, it's only 4km after all, day 2 and three I was walking like a zombie; everything was aching, I was more unfit than I realised! But I have kept on going, the aches have gone, although there are a few old injuries I can feel, but each day I am getting a little stronger and actually starting to enjoy running a bit again.
Over the weekend I even managed to get out for a couple of runs on the trails of Cornwall, with its abandoned tin mines, rocky cliff top trails and glorious sunshine.
Any of you prepared to take on #forrestrun21? Common, it's fun!
