Feeling a little apprehensive about my run today.
I have been happily progressing from 5k to 10k, but made a bit of a boo boo last week. I did a good 8k run on Wednesday in 5 x 10 minute intervals, and felt fantastic. Furthest I have ever run. I have been feeling like I need to add in a fourth run in a week, so decided to do a short fast(ish) 3k on Thursday. I set out at a roaring pace for the first k, then walked for a breather, then set off again for a 2nd K but by the end I was completely whacked and felt like I had cramp in my shins and my calves at the same time. Walked the rest of the way home. I am now kicking myself and I think I should have listened to you all when you said not to run on consecutive days.
Then to add insult to injury, I went to the parkrun on Saturday having had a bit of a dodgy tummy on Friday, and didn't even make it to the start - ended up volunteering which was still good fun, but felt like a bit of a failure.
Feeling better today and ready to get out there for another 8k of intervals tonight, but a little apprehensive that I haven't run for a few days. I'm sure it will be great, but I thought I would ask for a little motivation from the forum gurus - and if you can shoehorn in a clever song title into the advice then all the better.
