Graduated a week ago and this is my second run since. Lots of issues with stress at work right now (3 weeks of no lunch breaks and. 60 hr weeks) and have a cold but thought going out on this bright morning would help. NO
Decided to run on a field for a change: but it was so muddy I could barely walk on it and my feet slipped about 10 times in 5 mins. So rented to pavement, but the sun was in my eyes and I tripped over a curb stone. Slight twist to my ankle which is sore but ok otherwise.
Also I was wearing my new top that I treated myself to for graduating (only managed 3k mind so graduated in keeping going for 30 mins but not at the 5k) but it kept ridding up and showing my buddha belly. It was expensive but is tight and should help keep my temperature stable as my Raynaulds means I take ages to warm up and then don't loose heat easily so have a tendency to overheat and get faint.
Came home after 10 mins of humiliation. Might never go out again as I am a pathetically slow jogger anyway and have been told before I am never going to be a runner because of my flat feet. Plus with my body temperature issues, being fed up of the same old roads, overworked and very stressed, and that I am just totally rubbish at this and have no support with anything as I'm a singer parent, I think I should just give up, eat chocolate and go back to the sofa where I belong. I can't even get music onto my iPhone so I can try jogging to something that isn't the same old stuff.
I did try going to a gym but felt so humiliated there I stopped going. I've been paying for the past 6 months but am too scared to go back. Pathetic is my name and I hereby offer my resignation from the programme.
