Feel a whole lot better

There is no better feeling than this. Ten weeks since my Achilles problem started, in which time I've managed a couple of races (both featured in the latest Runner's World - two pieces by me on the same page) and a very few runs that were little more than jogs and often cut short by complaints from the offending tendon, I finally managed a real run this evening. Only about 3.4 miles, and not much under half-an-hour to do it, but no grumbles from my injuries and a stretch round the Abindgon ring road where there was something approaching flow going on.

I was a little short of breath, and not surprisingly I have lost a lot of fitness - but I feel a whole lot better now that I am running again!
