Got What I Deserved!

After overlaying for the park run i went for what i thought was a tootle round Barnsley. Thought id go a way not been before, along a few wanky roads too (Debsy) it was already 18degrees and really muggy, then it started to rain, suffered badly with the hills and made it back breathless but managed 5k in under 30m. Ju Ju talked yesterday about everyone having a bad run, todays was mine, dont run on not much sleep, late night chinese food and poor hydration, i got what i deserved. Keep running but Failing to Prepare is Preparing to Fail to quote some wiser man than me!!!

😬sorry the wanky roads didn’t help your run 😂🙈

I agree the prep the day before can make all the difference. I learnt that lesson last weekend to will be drinking plenty today before running in the morning... water on a Saturday night and alarm clocks on a Sunday... I hardly recognise myself 😱

Its not a bad time your right but it was the first time i wanted to quit, couldnt breathe and had terrible jelly legs, didnt enjoy that feeling, nearly sick at the end!!

It sounds grim, maybe when it's horrible and muggy you need to slow it down a notch to avoid that awful feeling.

Hope the next run is a bit happier. :-)

I know it's all relative to what we can do but 5k in 30 mins 💭 what dreams are made of 😉 .. well done for making the most of a "cough" bad run.

That doesn't sound nice .. I hope your next run is more pleasant. I have been trying to push myself to run faster and yesterday for a change I set out really slow .. had a great run totally enjoyed it I would say more than any other run. I am sure you will find your happy run next time out 👍

I was supposed to be in Baaaaaarnslet today but cried off. I wanted to be alone 😁 in Derbyshire instead

I intend doing the Parkrun there at some point. There is some seriously good countryside to explore there
