As you know I should have been running today in the Bushy Park 5km but sadly on Thursday during WK8 R2 I pulled my right hamstring. I had hoped there may be some improvement but alas it is worse today and my right calf is also solid.
Now I don't know about injuries so rest is all I can do. However whilst resting my goal that was so close is drifting further and further away. I am devastated I have achieved nothing in life until I started this and lost including today 17KG.
My motivation has gone out of the window with worry. Will I have to go back to building up again, what about my weight loss programme, how can I lose weight if I don't exercise and only reduce my intake, what about those in France who were going to run with me on Friday next week and Sunday morning after the party the night before? What about my WK9? It all seems so far away and snatched from me by a hamstring!
I don't like change but the support and advice I was getting said I must do more strength exercise. The routine changed and I introduced the gym and cycling (other than to and from the pub) and bang gone. I did not need the gym I was doing ok without it.
Keep on running.....
