Have not run for 6 days since Abi’s October Speed Challenge finished.
Not injured,beat myself up for being lazy,but the truth is cannot handle ticking off rapidly a long job list.
When loads of stuff comes along, particularly with a short lead time, I am just useless.
Trying to be busy,preparing to go off to the family in the Gulf, all the preparation stuff before going while away and for return.🙈
What suffers running.🙈 After hedge cutting hamster wheel for 4 weeks this year well that is not going to be repeated.
Facts are for me I lose too much fitness that I can simply measure through loss of pace.While this is not critical for the enjoyment of running I think it is at least one,and an accurate measure of performance and fitness. At my slow pace I can always get round anything I set myself 5-10K,when I first return, but I do have to recover one to nearly two mins per km in a 1-3 month period before trying to make further progress again.
Definately two steps back.🙈🤔
I have hassled myself all week,mr running brain, mr running core, mr running anything, except mr running conscious, they have all been told to get their act together or they can pack their bags and they are certainly not going to the Gulf.
We all know the rewards that mr running gives us , whether we like it or not, so as many on here say , stick at it, just do it, until it is a habit.
For those that can multi task,ladies 🏃♀️of course and some men🤔well that’s one less thing to get in the way.
Only comfort for me is I think I have identified one of my problems,so got to workout the solution, the fact that it has taken 75 years just confirms that I am as thick as two short planks.
But I do not care, I have found running and this forum.
Running the golden thread that binds us and the forum together and running that is simply life giving.
Go everyone and enjoy.💥🏃♀️🏃♂️💥☄️☄️
