Head clearing 2.5k

Becky1606 profile image

Hi all;

I’m going to complete Ju-Jus week 1 tomorrow with a 5k. However, I haven’t had time to run this week and I had one too many aperol spritz’ last night so was feeling unmotivated and gross all day (hangovers and a bad body dysmorphia day don’t mix). When I used to feel like this I would mope around feeling worse but today decided not to!

I wasn’t feeling up to a full 5k as I find running in public quite stressful when my body dysmorphia is up, but it was gorgeous outside so I headed to my local park for a gentle jog and fresh air instead of to the gym.

Cleared the head with a very gentle 2.5k and I feel SO much better now... plus the view helped!

It’s not too bad; this running lark.

Well done for getting out but are you still running tomorrow Becky.? Just checking, because they recommend you don’t run consecutive days during your first year.
