Went out for the first time after my physio last Friday yesterday. I missed a week due to the return of the dreaded migraine. Did my pre run physio exercises, donned the new Brooks and pounded the streets for 35 minutes. It was tough. It involved some slowing down. It also involved some walking. On the plus side I was quite fast considering and did 5.47k. The shoes were brilliant. Didn't know trainers could make such a difference! I felt really supported and had no hip or knee pain. Going out once or twice a week just isn't getting me anywhere though. I can't seem to push past the 5k which is really annoying. When I'm out I just feel like I'm a fake the whole time - not like I'm a runner at all. I keep thinking I'm killing time until I realise I can't do it after all. Maybe it's all the setbacks. I need to re-engage mojo if I'm going to sock it to these charity runs this year.
