I had lost some stamina and had calf pains recently but I am feeling stronger and fitter. I have kept in walk breaks and limiting myself to 5k. I walk for 100 double paces, then run for 100 double paces. Then I repeat for the run. If I feel strong after 100, I run to 150, 200 or keep going til I need to walk but the minimum is 100! Counting blocks out the negative thoughts and I use my fingers for each set of 10, makes it fun and 100 comes along quickly. I have noticed my running pace is great too. This is really breaking the time down and I am hoping to do more running, much less walking and get back to my 5k non stop runs very soon. Will do a long Monday walk run too. Feeling positive and impressed I ran at 6 am before my busy day
