So I've been taking it slowly, easing my way through the weeks and being careful not to push too hard so that I don't hurt my slightly dodgy knee - and so far it's been going really well. Last Wednesday evening I went out for my first attempt at W5r3, and it was fine - a few dog-related pauses as Troublesome Pup decided she wasn't in the mood to co-operate, but on the whole it was a really good run, and I came home pretty satisfied.
Since then, though, my mojo has crept back into bed, pulled the duvet up around its ears, and gone into hibernation. I couldn't get out on Friday or Saturday, due to life getting in the way, and Sunday I let laziness take over (calling it 'recovery'...). Mondays are no good for running, so I needed to go yesterday evening. And didn't. So now I'm feeling grumpy at myself for letting myself down.
I've vowed that I MUST go tonight while DD2 is out - I can take her, drop her off, go for a run, then collect her. Except her group aren't meeting in their normal place, so that throws things off again. But enough of the excuses. Please can someone kick me off the couch...!
