I have been having trouble getting my act together recently. I was doing the Nike+ coaching programme to prepare me for the Colour Run on the 16th but sort of became disinterested. Started doing interval runs - walk 5 mins, run for two music tracks, walk for one, for about 30/40 minutes.
Today I decided to try a new route. It was mostly flat and in a nice place - but I just couldn't do the whole Stepping Stones run without stopping. Stopped about four or five times. This is the first time this has happened with Laura for company. And then I find that my pace was considerably slower!
Why is it that I ran almost 8km one day (a couple of months ago, albeit walk/run), and now I can't run 30 mins?
