I knew I wasn't full of enthusiasm for my run today - it has been a busy week all round with too many late nights (and too many early mornings!) A week also, of highs and lows - excitement/challenge of new job on one hand, adrenaline fuelled EU debate (and disappointment ☹️) on the other. I just feel tired today!😴. "No matter", I thought, "I won't run a 10k today. Maybe a 6/7k. I'll be fine when I get out there!" WRONG! I was rubbish when I got out there! Right from the beginning, it just seemed like hard work. After 3k, when it usually starts to get easier, it still felt hard! Added to this, the recent rain had resulted in part of my trail being ridiculously overgrown by nettles, brambles and thistles (they were out to get me today!) my normal gremlin-free run was very much interrupted by the pesky blighters! I struggled up a hill I haven't struggled up for ages and then took a walk break, which I don't think helped my rhythm. By 5k, I decided today was a short run day and headed for home. Somewhat disappointed with myself but I guess a run is a run and hopefully after a couple of days rest I will feel re-energized again. Today was not a good day. Next time it will be...🏃🏻(I hope!)
