Hi everyone, new girl on the block.........
I started c25k last August with my long-suffering husband in a desperate attempt to be fit rather than fat. I couldn't believe how addictive it was and by November we were able to run for 35 mins, although hadn't quite managed 5k - probably about 4.5k, but still pretty good, we thought!
Then disaster struck and I pulled a muscle in my lower back which set off sciatic pain that took weeks to settle, during which, no running. We eventually started again in April and are now able to manage about 20 mins (VERY slow) running, but this time it's soooooooo much harder to drag ourselves out there. It's as if all the shine has gone and I feel bored and unmotivated whereas before we were keen as mustard.
We're determined to keep going but I'm just wondering whether anyone else recognises this phase (if that is what it is) and has any ideas about how to get our mojo back!
