I graduated just over a month ago but since then have struggled to run 3 times a week - it's been once or twice, along with gym sessions and Pilates. The weather was so lovely this afternoon and I finally got out - my last run was over a week ago. Well, I felt like I needed to start back at week 1! I did 2 circuits round the next village (have only done one before) but had to walk quite a few times. Finished at the gym for stretches and foam roller to the aching legs. I don't have a GPS tracker so checked my route on mapometer when I got back - the section I ran and walked was just over 4k. If I include my warm up and cool down walks it was 5.25k. Feeling a bit disheartened that I seem to have lost a lot of the stamina I built up over the 9 weeks. Was thinking of doing my 2nd Parkrun next Saturday but not sure now that I could keep going.
