Headed out very tired at 6:30 this morning. Lower back was achy, legs heavy and non-cooperative. Had to stop after only 15 min and walked, quite slowly with jelly legs. Tried to kick start my running a few times but only managed to run a short distance before walking again. So thought, never mind, the sun is out, the sky is blue and a morning walk in nature is good for you too.
Never had this before but I am dog tired. Had a very busy week last week and only managed 2 runs. Felt sick on Friday, choked on a piece of meat which got lodged in my throat and drank a litre bottle of diet coke on doctor's advice which weirdly dislodged it. What muck is in that drink?! Anyhow it is full of caffeine which I don't usually drink so it kept me awake all night. Saturday I had a concert which my long suffering throat managed thanks to honey and gargles. Too keyed up to sleep that night either. Concert again on Sunday and felt completely knackered all day. I think today I was just too tired and it hopefully wasn't the beginning of a whole new running phase. A walk can also be a good start to your day.
