I last ran on Jan 16th and have struggled with motivation, lack of sleep, breathing issues .... This morning I could not stand it any longer and dragged myself out of bed and into my running gear and out the door before I could change my mind.
It didn’t seem too cold and was dry when I first set off. I was doing my brisk walk to warm up and thinking to myself “ I wonder if we will have snow as forecast...”. And then it started gently mizzling...... and continued for the rest of my run. Well I say run...... there was a fair bit of walking involved..... mainly running though.
Ive been struggling with my breathing a bit lately and had a review of my asthma plan last week but there was no problem with my breathing this morning just really really heavy tired legs. No idea why as I’ve been upping my water consumption lately ( in an unsuccessful thus far bid to lose weight) but it was like dragging two dead tree trunks round with me.
So no speed records or PBs this morning but I did manage to drag myself round 5k which I was pleased with. Still haven’t managed to shake off the banging headache that I woke up with unfortunately. Let’s hope the next run is a bit easier on my legs 🤞
And I did stop to say hi to the emus on my walk back home
