I'm fat, slow and unable to finish this mornings parkrun. Feel so defeated. Managed 7.5k on holiday so it's not the distance. It's the voice in my head that compares me to the 'real' runners. Ran 2 of the 3 laps at a faster pace than I have ever run but was so disheartened by being dead last that I gave up. I even sent my running partners on without me. I just can't keep up. Feel a real failure. It was also treacherous underfoot and the slippery mud gave me a real fright.
I've downloaded the speed podcast for 5+ and will give it a go this week. Parkrun I will be back.
