Just had a terrible run. I've been feeling ill recently anyway...run down and have a cold etc, and this morning after breakfast I thought I was going to be sick.
I waited an hour, then set off for week 6 run 2. It was awful. I managed to jog very slowly for about 6 or 7 minutes...then had to walk for 1 or 2, then ran for the remainder of the 10 minutes. I had to stop then, didn't even attempt the second 10 minute run. Even though I was going slowly I was incredibly short of breath, felt sick and had a bile/irony taste in my mouth (gross!). Feel really **** about it. Typing this now my arms are aching, and I have pain in my neck and between my shoulder blades.
I think I'm pushing myself too hard, as I'm also doing strength exercises on my rest days.
I also went faster today...my top speed on Tuesday with the 5 min/8 min/5min runs was 6.36mph and today my top speed was 7.25.
Despite all this, I feel super rubbish for failing today Any advice on how I can avoid this in future?
