I’m finding everything a real struggle at the moment and it’s making me struggle even more!!
I’m trying to work my way up to 10k and was doing really well until bloody corona started ruining the world! I’d gotten up to 50mins (7k) and was so bloody proud! Now I just seem to be going backwards!
1 week BC (before corona) I was doing my three magic plan runs plus a couple of classes, now the classes are gone and I feel as though the runs are getting harder. I’m still pushing myself to go out 3 times a week but I’m just not hitting my targets! I’m feeling more tired in the legs so I think I’m going faster (not on purpose, just to get the run done) and getting out of breath and getting more tired on the legs so my 30 mins run is ending up around 20mins and I’ve not managed a long run for about 3 or 4 weeks. That in itself is making my head tell my body, you can’t do it... grrrrr
Anyway, I’m sorry, I don’t like to be negative and I think I’m pouring it out on here to get it out of my head! I managed a 30 min this morning but only got 4.5k and it was hard! I have my ‘long run’ on Saturday morning... see if I can get my head in a better place!
