Just could not run.
I overdosed on cheese last night, could not go to sleep, tossing and turning for ages.
Got up this morning to a drizzle. Went out and found I could not walk briskly. I did my best, then started my run. The air was fresh, it was nice. Within 5 minutes it was a slog. I was tired and just wanted to stop. I decided not to listen to those gremlins and carried on. It was so hard. By the 8th minute I had to stop and walked the small hill, then ran again on the flat for a very short time but then could not carry on and walked the other hill. I did another minute downhill and gave up. Walked all the way back home. There was no joy, no pleasure. what is going on? Is it the cheese, the lack of sleep or just being burned out? It is winter here, raining, grey and I just came back from a seven weeks relaxing and running, wonderful sunny warm holiday. Maybe it is the consequences!
I mean, I could do 6K no worries, I did a fun run and got a medal but today I run/walked 3.3K ! How is that for a downer
