Pleased to say I had a good run last night. Even though I didn't feel like it (I've been having a bit of a run in with the running lately, lack of confidence an all that) I headed out and thought 'well what's the worst that can happen?' . Interval training and 7k later I'm like a changed woman, buzzing and high fiving it all the way home (to myself of course!). Oh and did I mention the personal best over the 5k which was so hilly so I'm having that one.
So here's the thing. I'm totally rational (most of the time) and I know every run can't be brilliant, life affirming and all that jazz. But how do you cope with the rubbish runs? It does strike me as amazing that despite the slow, why do I do this runs I'm still making progress. I'm beginning to think you just have to go through it whatever it ends up like, and keep er lit as best you can, because for some reason it just all ends up adding up.
