I am getting into a state and it is time to be honest. I have had problems with a numb foot when running since I hit 25 minutes. For my Friday run I loosened my shoes as much as possible but it was even worse and quite worrying . I had to slow right down a few times. I stayed on the treadmill for 8 mins more to make up for it. I read up on it and it really is a process of elimination. So Sunday I wore my husband's trainers (much too big really) run in intervals of 5 min run 1 min fast walk and it worked!! no numbness. Tomorrow I will do the interval in my trainers (as I expect it is my trainers that are the issue now I know it is not me) I was really upset that I had 'wasted' two runs as I have not completed 2/3 whole 25 mins but the biggest issue is that I really enjoyed the interval runs and can't wait to do tomorrow and I really hate the longer runs.
It is really silly being so upset about it but my most of me wants to interval the 5k and improve my time and get there that way. There is a bit of me that feels a failure and I am really upset I feel like this as this really isn't me.
