I know running is our own personal journey but I am desperately in need of some advice and encouragment. I graduated earlier in the year and was running a regular three times a week two 5ks and a longer run on a Sunday or Saturday parkrun. I felt my fitness was improving and I had lost weight and was toning up. I went on holiday in August and even managed to get three runs in there, however......
When I returned home I found I was less motivated to run and I'm not sure why, I did not get a place in the london marathon which I was disappointed about but felt that target may have been a bit ambitious, as I am a relatively novice runner, so was considering working towrads a shorter event like another 10k.
I am cocnenred the longer I am not running the risk of my fitness levels dropping are increasing although I do a lot of walking it is really at a slow pace with the dog!
I wondered if anyone can offer any pearls of wisdom to get the fire back in my belly and my lazy body back in the lycra, thank you in advance for all honest feedback which will be most welcomed and appreciated.
