Wow what a hard run/shuffle this was this morning. At times I had to check if i was even moving my feet. I felt so out of it. Temperatures were 72degrees and tropical humidity. They were calling for rain so I woke a bit earlier at 4:30am, had my coffee, and out the door by 5:15am. Not a moment of this run was easy. I struggled from the very beginning. My legs felt like bricks. I just wanted it to end. Thankfully I completed the workout but I wouldn't really call it a success. Mentally I didn't feel strong. I've heard people refer to a 'runners high' well I would say I had a 'runners low'. Kinda concerned about the next long run approaching. Just praying these temperatures cool and humidity drops.
Week 6 R2 ugh: Wow what a hard run/shuffle this... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Well done on completing it, don't let this one effect the next one as they really are all very different. Sometimes my legs feel so heavy and I know I would be faster walking but you kept going and that is brilliant. Enjoy the feeling of your achievements so far
Hi SillyLilly. Well done on the run this morning, if this was a tough run chances are the next will be a good one. Stay proud of what you have already done, especially over-coming the tough runs!
I am doing w6 3 on Friday. On-line I have read it's a 25minute run.
We can and will both do it!
I will think of you and will be shouting us both on. Put the gremlins back in their box and tie the lid down!
I look forward to reading your next update.
