So tonight heralded my first time I was unable to complete a run 😥 After finishing week 7 run 3 last week, I took part in a charity 5k event, which btw was awesome! I walked the first 5mins, then walked 4 mins in the middle then ran the rest. It felt epic, and I've been on a high ever since...
... Fast forward to this evening and I felt ready to go and do week 8 run 1. Now, it's been full on at work this week (14 day yesterday) in addition to Saturday's running, but I thought I could do it.
Ten minutes into the run, I had to stop. I just had no energy, my inner thighs ache and my hips feel heavy. What's going on? Is this my poor overweight body begging for a rest?
After hobbling home, I m soaking in the bath mulling it over. When should I go out and try the run again? How long should I rest? I am determined to do this, but equally don't want to to be stupid and risk injury.
Any advice from you lovely people most welcome 😊
