Hi everyone, hope everyone's doing well.
I've not posted for a while, and I'm not very happy with myself because since graduation I've been slacking off gradually more and more. I think the problem is that I wanted to prove to myself I could finish the 9 week programme without slacking off, and now that I've done that I don't feel I have anything to prove to myself anymore. Which is silly because I never did reach 5K in 30 mins!
I had gone down to 2 runs a week and this week I have been on holiday and I did take my running stuff with me which I know many of you have also done; but I didn't use it! There was just too much holiday fun going on and I didn't want to miss anything, but I regret it now. We got back home last night but now I've caught my partner's cold I don't feel I'll be able to run for a few more days as I feel very run down and snuffly this morning, it's a shame as I was planning to run tomorrow morning but I think that would be silly and not go very well.
So I've gone from feeling I'm slacking to now being worried that I'm jeopardising all the improvements to my fitness I've made by not running for 1-2 weeks!
Oh well, no point feeling sorry for myself, it's my own fault, I will just have to work up from wherever I am at when I start running again.
Has anyone else felt the same post graduation? I need a new goal I think - should set a date for running a community race I think, and that will motivate me!
