You're doing really well, just take a minute to remember what you've been through, and as you say motherhood & work can also be demanding. The fact that you are still running is fab! Speed doesn't matter at this point. We WILL get stronger.
Love & springtime

That's absolutely brilliant RunningMum! And the clocks go forward this weekend! Spring is in the air, you'll soon be flying along.
Im doing ok, but very tired these past few weeks, noticeably slower.
Think it is a cumulative thing of mastectomy, chemo and herceptin over 16 months ( and obviously motherhood and work has its moments!! ). But my last jab is on the 10th April so I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll start speeding up again! On the other hand I'm still running so shouldn't whinge!
How are you doing ArgyMargy?

Thank you RunningFree and Lady B! Don't worry, I'm going to listen to my body especially over the next couple of weeks. Looking forward to having something positive to aim for. Hoping to run the Abbey Dash 10k in November so giving myself plenty of time to get back to full fitness.xx

Just remember you will still feel the effects of the rads for another two weeks so be careful, being mumsy again xx You need to keep moisturising, drinking plenty of fluids and get good rest xxx the effects can get wrose before they start to get better in that time

so good to hear everything went well....keep doing your arm exercises!
I had a Mx ( forgive me if I repeat myself!) so left it a month before running ( trying to be responsible for the first time in my life!!! Lol) and found I settled back into it fine. And you have been running for much longer than me!
what a great dream to have!!
keep in touch

Hello runners! Just dropped in to say surgery went well and I'm one week post-op, hoping to get my drains taken out today. About 3 nights ago I had a little dream where I was walking along and broke into a little jog. It made me laugh when I woke up
Just re-reading RunningFree's posts here and on her Cardiff half marathon thread gives me so much hope and inspiration, even though it seems a long way off for me to get back to fitness.

Something good about running in bad weather!!
i did a 5 k prom run yesterday (250 of us!). Still not up to pre BC times but not bad!! AND...
I have just received my special 'sports tit' from the BCN!!

Thank you very much RunningMum13 and RunningFree. I went for a last blast 13k yesterday and it felt fantastic! I think I'm partly trying to convince myself that if I can run that far and it feels so good, the cancer cannot possibly have spread.
Best of luck and all good wishes to all of you. xx
