Since I had a pain in my calf muscles, my confidence was knocked and every time I ran, either my brain was telling me to walk or I felt so tired, or my leg was sore, I just kept taking breaks. This week, I did a long run (10km) on Monday, a 5k on Wednesday (both with walk breaks when I needed one)! Today I did 7k and feel listening to music and having planned walk breaks (ever km, I walked for 50 paces) was a big improvement and more like a real run. Trouble is, once I introduced breaks instead of running for the whole time, I feel like I am cheating! My aim is to be able to do 5k with no walk breaks. Maybe, then I can think about my September half marathon
