Since I’ve begun running I have kept to 1 or 2 rest days without fail, I ran New Years Eve and then oopsie I kind of found a gazillion excuses not run...
Too cold, windy, wet,dark, late,gremlins, etc etc etc . Today was meant to be 3rd park run, heavy frost and very tired so I didn’t go. Anyway I spent the morning giving myself a good talking to and went out at lunchtime for a 30min run and yes I felt better and yes I regretted my indolence and yes I can run for 30mins so lazy blip over I think.
I realised while I was out that one can get caught up in the distance/speed spiral. I have a much younger sister who has done 13 marathons and one can feel a bit inadequate just running for a measly 30 mins. But I am doing this for different reasons and I want it to be a habit not a chore.
Roll on more clement weather, I’m sure others on here have had slumps but hopefully everyone ‘got back on the horse’
Happy January running everyone
