I don't know what went wrong legs felt like lumps of tree trunk, I got stitch about 10 minutes in and it was so painful at one point I thought I may have to stop, dug my fingers in my side and slowed down even more (was it possible?!) I completed the run but, hand on heart, if running felt like that every time I would never do it. Why could Tuesday's run feel so good and this one so lousy? I did a 10 minute warm up walk although only started my podcast 5 minutes into it. Read on another thread on here someone recommended not to stretch before a run. My legs felt terrible today so in future I am going to start my run where I usually do and definitely definitely stretch! Today's stats 3.3 miles, moving time 39.18, pace 11:45/mile. Really feel I have taken a massive step backwards. I couldn't go like the clappers at the Strava points - I couldn't think of anything other than getting through those 28 minutes.
Next run is on Sunday and I am going to do that up at Sherwood Pines while boyfriend goes mountain biking. I like that run though, I do it most weekends - nothing can be as bad as today's. Anyway, enough ranting. Tomorrow is another day - will just draw a line under this one and forget about it
