I fell off the wagon last week. After a yoga session on tuesday I got home late and didn't feel like I had the energy or time for a run so postponed till the next day. I did manage to run on the wednesday but that was it for the week, missing my run on thursday and saturday I even missed going to the gym on the sunday as St Ives was like a scene from waterworld dailymail.co.uk/video/news/... and the causeway I have to cross was closed. (I did go, but had to turn back )
I felt so low over the bank holiday having failed to run and was positively grumpy with myself and others.. 'bear with a sore head' springs to mind.
But I came onto the forum and read a few posts from others that were struggling and it seemed to help promote a little bit of anger at my lack of resolve which helped me get back out the door after yoga last night. My running routes are all still a quagmire though so had to stick to the paved bits and at one point a lake had breached and was flowing over the path so I ran ankle deep through it for 50m or so.. very refreshing
So thankyou fellow runners for your posts, even if your having a bad time your words may help others. I managed a nice 5k PB albeit with a slightly soggy bottom hehe
