Since starting this programme - started 22 April, graduated 18 June I've religiously run three times a week. I've been so amazed at becoming fitter and worry about losing that if I miss a run - so I haven't missed one.
Monday morning my tummy felt a bit dodgy. I set off thinking it wasn't really a problem though.. but ended up heading home soon and ran for just 15 minutes. After using the lav I went out for a further 10 minutes..
I've not felt so great since then and have felt a bit quesy today. So I'm thinking of not running tomorrow morning and waiting for Friday morning, giving myself a good rest. But I'm worried that by missing one, I won't be able to do it again.
My best run was last Wednesday and did a good run on Friday too. So I guess only Monday wasn't so good - my worst run
I hope I'm right to not run in the morning and then hope that Friday morning will be a whole new experience. I guess that if I don't reach my previous best, that would be ok - I should set myself a realistic expectation perhaps and just not expect to do a 5k run - BUT, realise that I will do it again - hopefully. See, I'm trying to be positive but can't get rid of that worry... I certainly don't want to have to start again, but I might need to bring myself back up over a few runs.
I've just loved what this programme has brought me and this lovely community is a great way to express both worries and joys . I'm not prepared to lose it, that much I do know.
