Well I did R1 of Week7 this morning and it was a slog all the way.I yawned my way through the warmup walk,made the mistake of looking at my watch towards the end of it and just could not imagine how the hell I was going to run for 25minutes.
Two minutes into the run and my calves felt tight( not happened before) a few minutes later my left ankle was twingey,then my lower back started aching....it seemed like every part of me was taking it in turn to complain.Around about 10 minutes in or it might have been at the halfway point,Laura chimes in with something about how I should now have found a "nice,steady rhythm".....yeah right, she got a bit of lip from me then.
It took until twenty minutes in before I got into any kind of rhythm and though I quite enjoyed the last few minutes ( they seemed to fly by) I got no buzz from it today .
Just me and a bad run, I suppose. I know from reading everyone's blogs that it happens and sometimes just out of the blue with no rhyme or reason. I did feel that I breezed through Week 6 -and the 25 minutes of R3 posed no probs whatsoever.
I suppose I had similar expectations for today,as I'd managed it without any trouble on Friday.
I'll just put that one behind me ,get back out on Wednesday and hope my heads in a better place.
Just in case this does read as one big fat whinge,I'd like to add it was a perfect morning,weather wise .....mornings and nights have cooled down considerably lately ,it even looked and felt a bit autumnal a few mornings last week,God forbid,we're not even halfway through August ! .....and at the halfway point ,just as I turn to come back,I was rewarded by the sight of a field of late sunflowers,next to the track,just starting to open,that I hadn't even noticed were there before
Well, I've not been on here for a few days so I'm going to have a cuppa now and catch up with some of your blogs/posts...they never fail to inspire .
