Well its been 2 weeks since my Race for Life and I've only run twice. Once last week and once this week. Ive had a tough couple of weeks - been in a bit of a dark place which sounds really melodramatic but I guess I have. I just didnt want to get out running at all, didnt think I could and just kept telling myself 'ill go tomorrow'. Tomorrow became tomorrow which became tomorrow and I just didnt go out. I think I made it worse on a horrendous 15 hour work day to London last week which included lots of walking in flat shoes (which I thought were sensible) but it must be the way in which I walk in them as my shins were so painful for about 3 days ish. I just couldnt walk! So this morning I made myself get up early. I was sort of waking up anyway but forced myself out of bed at 5.30am and went out. I wont lie it was hard and I sort of eased myself back in. I ran 20 mins, did 5 mins walk and ran 5 mins listening to Laura. The air was so thick it was like breathing in soup so ill be so glad when the weather sorts itself out and there is even a hint of a breeze. I want to try to get back to 3 times a week but ill take it easy. Maybe the same as today again towards the end of the week and see how I go. If I have learnt anything, its that its so very easy to keep saying tomorrow but you need to get out there and keep making a difference. Onwards and upwards!
