Well I read people's replies to my last post about returning to running and saw that there was a local 5K race coming up, so I decided to enter.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The atmosphere was good and somehow I managed to run at an even pace, even though my first run was only a month ago (I have kept some fitness in the meantime). Splits were 4:30, 4:40, 4:50, 5:00, 4:30 giving 23:30, which I was very pleased with.
So the next step is to join a club. If anyone knows about the clubs in Peterborough perhaps they could drop me a line to let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most of all, it was fun and a good workout.
