I was at about 3x 5-7k runs per week across March but I've been once in April and not at all for 10 days. that's the shitty thing about running - you can't be arsed when it's cold and then you feel like you're back at SQUARE ONE when you do go again.

I've set up a Belfast LGBTQ+ Running Group to start once restrictions ease. Trouble is that my speed and distance is going to be limited limited limited now, but I'm still quite excited.
Oh where is that going to be based?

I’ve not ran since last Autumn I don’t think, I just can’t BRING myself to do it back home for whatever reason. I’ll definitely make some ATTEMPT to get back into it when I’m back in Manchester next week, the weather warming up will certainly help. I got fed up of the cold hands (so I need to buy some gloves next winter!) and it felt uncomfortable to BREATHE when I was running in the cold, which may be due to my asthma.

Yeah I find if it's both cold and windy breathing becomes quite UNPLEASANT. I don't even have asthma, I'm just a DELICATE SOUL.

Park Runs are back in England from 5th June 😻

They've written to every landowner of where they previously ran to ask for permission to start up again, so provided they say yes they can go ahead.
I'm so ready for them to come back. Come on Park Run teleport us to a sub-20:00 5K :disco:

No running for another four weeks, but my physio says I can start using the gym again so I'm seeing my PT in a week or two for the first time since December. :disco: And I'm allowed to do some indoor cycling to a point, so I'm feeling up up up today.

I don't have asthma but if I try and run I just can't breathe, hot or cold weather. Is it just a case of getting my lungs used to it?? I really need to do something physical

Staying away from running for now. I'll stick with 1-2 HIIT workouts and a long hike or two medium hikes on the weekend for my weekly "cardio".

My body has gone through wild (weight) fluctuations in the last 18 months and I don't wanna push my joints too hard just yet.

Yes, that's totally normal, you need to get used to it. I started running last fall, at first it was impossible to run even 5 minutes, but after struggling a bit I ended up running 30 minutes every day, even 1 hour (but that was too much for my back, so went back to 30').

Ok thanks, perhaps I'll try giving it another go now the weather is better!

I saw some people doing bootcamp beside the sea on a drive there. Tempted to look into it.
