My last run until last Saturday was 11th May, I had a bad cold that week so didn't do the usual every other day runs. I then went on a 2 week holiday to Egypt, I did have the grand idea of still being able to run there but with daytime temps at @41oC and only dropping to @36oC at night there was no chance of that. Since getting home on the 1st June I seemed to find every excuse not to get back out and start again. So finally last Saturday I forced myself into going for the next run, I didn't want to go back and repeat weeks so I dived straight in to W8r1. I really struggled, especially @ 20min in. I had to walk for about 30seconds before carrying on at a slower pace. Once back at home I checked my diary and I'm now pretty sure that I should have done W7r1 not W8!
I've just tried W7r1 on my treadmill at home as the weather is shocking today and only managed @ 10mins before I gave up (all my other runs were outside). I don't know if it was the fact it was on the treadmill and I don't really like running on that or just that I've lost so much fitness in 4 weeks. Before the break I used to really look forward to the runs and hated the days when i had to rest. Now I don't know what to do to get back into the rhythm. Should I maybe go back to week 6 and start from there? Help!
