My goodness I was rubbish at running today. I had a 45 minute window of opportunity at 0900 with the kids all out at swimming. However I was oncall so my phone had to come too. I quickly got ready and stepped out into the cold, my goodness it was freezing and the paths white. I set out and my breathing was harder to catch up with my legs. My legs felt tired especially my left ankle that I have found to be quite weak after hopping exercises. I didn't have my ipod in case work phoned so no music. The phone flapping in my phone was annoying. I felt tense and it was hard work for a 2.5 mile run. My right hip flexor was twinging again as my hip gets so cold. The desire to stop was huge but I carried on. I feel I just don't have the running ability.......when does it get easier? Such a contrast to my 10k on Monday that I feel like that was a dream and I am a running imposter.
