Amazing what a few weeks can do. I was feeling down and so low a few weeks back, so as advised by the wise folks on here, I dropped from 10k's to 5k in preparation for a 5k race on 3rd of August. Did ok at 33 mins which I was happy with.
So now I have signed up for Great Scottish Run on the 5th October a 10k which I did last year. And this past 10 days my runs have much improved. Not the time, but the distance. So this week it was 3 x 9k's as well as a few 5-10k dog walks as well.
Feeling better and more accepting of the time when the run is not 100%. Just go out and enjoy it someone said. So I did. And you know the less pressure you put yourself under the more relaxed you feel.
So am back in the running seat again. Lets hope it stays that way as am really enjoying it too!
