Hi everyone, haven't posted for a little while but I have been trying to keep with the running. It was going well but as my post title states I seem to have lost my mojo a bit. I'm out of the routine of running on defined days which is something I did when on the programme. Now I base it more on weather (I don't like rain but I live in the north of Scotland!!) and schedule so it means running on consecutive days which I don't think helps. Went for a run with my mum last week which was the first time I've ever run with someone else and that was lovely. Much more fun too- she's been running for years so it was a short (5k) run for her with the pace set by me but it was lovely to run together- made her very happy! Since then I've done at least runs per week, usually a 5k which for me is around 28 mins but I feel like I'm
Less fit now than when I was doing the last weeks of the programme! I am going faster but I reached a peak of 5k in 27 mins and now I'm
Struggling, felt sick the last few runs I've done and today I stopped after 4K as I just wasn't feeling good. I'll post a screen grab of my run yesterday from strava so you can an idea of my speed etc but just looking for some advice to get back to good running and enjoying it again. Feels like stamina I'm struggling with but I don't want to slow down as I've already slowed in speed since my best run a few weeks ago. I'm under a lot of pressure with my job- I'm at risk of redundancy (work in the oil industry) as is my boyfriend and we have a huge mortgage and are (only!) 28 and 32 so really need our jobs!!! Maybe it's stress encroaching on my running!!!!
