Not good, quite bad and very ugly

Morning and can I just start this by going “Urrrrrrrggggh”. And then finish on “Argrrrrrrrrrrrhhh”. That essentially encapsulates my run 🤣

I’ve decided to try and run two -three 5ks a week to consolidate what I’ve achieved so far. Tuesday was fine but today was rubbish . Due to life commitments , it had to be a dawn patrol today or not at all...my bed was snug and warm, the outside was drizzling and misty ..I didn’t want to do it, but i dragged myself out for a run knowing I’d only be more angry with myself for skipping it later.

It was just rubbish, couldn’t find my rhythm, legs were burning a lot earlier than normal, pace was slow even for me...it just wasn’t there today. I had a strong head wind on the way back (it’s kind a loop) so I’m going into denial and blame it on that, got through it but very glad it’s finished.

Just a bad one today ( there you go newbies, I’ve graduated and I still get them,just grit teeth and keep goimg👍🏻)

It’s the bad ones that make us stronger...isn’t it?!?..🤪🤪🤣🤣😂🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

Mine wasn’t great last night.., (I’m blaming mine on running evening when I like morning runs)

But.... we know these happen and we know it doesn’t MEAN anything (thanks to this forum)

Onwards and upwards for us both next time!👍🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

Absolutely. Whilst we all love the good runs. A completed run is a completed run, regardless of how we felt whilst doing it. Like in everything else we will have off days whilst running.

However, if you can face that and still not quit, well then you my friend are made of granite! Gremlins beware.

It does indeed! But often a grotty one precedes a great one, right?!
