I have been using my time in lockdown to start running again.  I used to run alot when I was younger – well until I had children.  Overeating and stress over the last three months has led to my little lockdown belly which I am determined to get rid of.
I am following the BBC’s Couch to 5K programme – which I am really loving.  I am lucky that my lovely friend Karen is also doing it – we are both around week 3/4 (well she’s week 4 I am stuck on week 3 due to injury) at the moment so I have some accountability which really helps – it is a 9 week plan.

So those of you who are runners – or thinking about running I have been doing a LOT of research.  My main issue is my calf/achilles.  Having had a gait analysis I have changed my running shoes which make SO MUCH difference – also like running in slippers!  BUT I also need to start strength training.

I thought this guidance may help:
