I’m a relatively new subscriber, having signed up at The National Running show back in January. I was a month into a rest period from running, due to one of those dreaded runner’s niggles, for which the doctor advised me not to run. Then followed the negativity, worry over losing fitness levels and the realisation that this niggle could result in me having to miss out on this year’s Great North Run.

Although I haven’t been able to run, I’ve been engrossed in Women's Running and have loved reading the inspiring stories and advice on how to stay injury free. I’ve found myself thinking about how to take care of myself – running or not. However, I’m currently feeling more of a fool than a clued-up runner. Yesterday I completed my first run since Christmas Eve. I joined Abington Park Joggers and went along for my first session. As it turned out, the improver’s group were supporting the beginners on their first 5K. The sensible part of my brain said: “Wow, you can’t do 5K right away!” while the other was saying: “Well you’re here now, so you may as well see what happens!” Thirty-two minutes and 32 seconds later, I had run the whole 5K. I’m now 70 per cent convinced I’ve damaged something and 30 per cent thrilled to bits I did it and can’t wait to go again. I wonder if I’m alone in this or if there are lots of others who, post-injury, went on their first ‘ease-in run’ only to find they couldn’t help but go for it?

About Women’s Running

Get inspired to take your running off the beaten track, with the July issue of Women’s Running, on sale 31 May. From our beginner’s guide to ultrarunning (including a 16-week training plan), to the lowdown on all things vertical racing, this issue celebrates adventure in running – and shows you how you can get a piece of it. Don’t fear, though, that doesn’t have to mean transforming into an ultra-athlete, running ludicrous miles in remote locations. We’ll show you how simply taking your runs off road and embracing the great outdoors can shake up your routine – and add some soul to your running. And if you need some convincing, don’t miss our interview with cover star and off-road enthusiast Caroline McKay, who tells us why the life-affirming nature of trail running has got her totally hooked. This issue also features our spring Ultimate Race Guide, compiling the best 100 races taking place from July onwards this year, so you can start planning your next adventure …
