Well, that was a disaster

Back from my conference this evening I thought I would get my running clothes on and head out for a 30 minute run.

After 10 'minutes it was quite clear that I wasn't going to get there. Backs of the calves just seemed to pull and I couldn't find a rhythm. I decided to give it another 5 minutes, and by the end of that I was done.

It was too warm and too late in the day. Well that and that to get to my conference I have to walk to the railway station, then up the hill out of the station, up another hill to the centre, up 3 flights of stairs. Lunch time involves upstairs and down stairs. And the return home is only good because it is all the way back down the hills you've climbed.

I suspect that after two days of this exercise my legs are laughing at me including another element for them. 4 more days of the conference exercise regime. I'll give running another shot on Wednesday, and today wasn't really a disaster, just frustrating.

  • Not every run has to be 30-minute or 5km long. ;)

    You went out and you run for 15 minutes (at the end of a pretty active day); it's not a disaster and there's noting to be frustrated about.

  • So you gave yourself a varied session of stairclimbing and running :) That's not a problem, it's just variety :)

  • ...and you know what Laura would say... all together now... " A bad run is better than no run!" My friend secan is right.. end of a long day, what is there to be bothered about!

    You had plenty of exercise! :)

  • Give yourself a break! Exercise does not have to be 'planned' it can just happen as part of your day. It sounds like you are getting plenty without putting on your trainers.

  • So you did a 15min run. That's no disaster. Your body is allowed an off day, so are you.

    Let your muscles heel.and get back to it.


  • but you went further then your sofa! ;)
