Excuse the bad language but what a bad bloody run!

Just did week 6 run 1. Having an emotional time at the moment and kind of stressful so decided it was just as important as any other run... If only I knew the area the route and there were less hills

I'm staying at my mums this weekend who lives in quite a hilly place in London, I was again determined to remain active while here. Except my usual route at home include no hills and grass!

Today's run ended up quite broken at first to make sure I got the route right and didn't get lost, I did so started the podcast again and attempted a different route and got a hill in the 8 min run section, I couldn't keep my rhythm up and keep steady breath so gave up in the end... What a rubbish bloody run!

May have to do today's run again on Tuesday or do I start again tomorrow and not push the 'run week' too far back!

How do we think I get round today's issues?!

  • well done for getting out there, and you did a run...thats all progress....I always find new routes hard. Well done and good luck on the programme.

  • Hi there BITW. Sorry to hear about your troubles. If it were me, I would put that run down to experience and just repeat it in a calm and measured manner. You'll crack it I am SURE! Then just move on as per, would be my most humble advice.

    Good luck with it all.

  • Well done for getting out there. Put it down to an experience and start again next week I would think. It's not a race and its better to say ohh well than stress about it. Your next good run it will be forgotten about. Good luck.
