Its been alongside time sińce i posted on here. I haven't given up the running but I did have a bit of a bad patch with running. I just had no energy and the effort to run was almost painful. It's been a bit of a uphill climb but I've just managed my first this year 33 minute run today. My fastest time last year was 33:38. I've been struggling to get anywhere near this time. At last. Mentally I have challenged myself to try to get closer to a 30 minute 5k. That's my challenge and I'm sticking to it. Strangely I seem to run better in the rain.
