Last Sunday evening I managed 5.5km, and have had two more good runs since. It's been a horrible stressful weekend, so I was full of hope that this evenings run would release the stress and set me up well for next Saturday's 5k. Sadly, it was not to be.
My legs felt tired from the off, although not painful, and my breathing was controlled but not really comfortable. After 1km I had a short (maybe 50m) walk, then did a second lap of my route. At the end of that I was intending to do a third, but called it quits and came home instead, for probably he first time ever wishing I hadn't bothered going out.
So tonight it's victory to the gremlins. They can have this one, but I'll be back...!
