I knew it had to happen soon ........ got over confident with my running, increasing my distance gradually each week until I got to 10k + Then came Easter and I had a 10 day break. Big mistake! First run back thought I would do an easy 5-6k - what a struggle. Still, I thought 'never mind it will get better!' Went out gain last night and disaster! For the first time ever I changed my route midway half way up a hill I decided I had enough, turned round and headed home. I managed 7.7k but I probably walked 0.7k of it. The distance wasn't what worried me, it was how I felt after! It was worse than week 1! Today I felt like I have been hit by a train, I'm aching all over! When I've had bad runs in the past I know it's all in my head but this is my legs! Some one please tell me this will get better!
