I’m back after a long hiatus and many false starts
I’ve tried c25k about 3 times in the past, the furthest I got was week 7 about two years ago when injury put me out. The other couple of times life and everything just got in the way.
So I restarted again about 3 weeks or so ago and I’ve been really enjoying getting out there again. Weeks one and two were really easy but the three minute runs in week 3 were a little tough.
Today however was awful. Really bad. I did some weight training yesterday so I was a bit achey and I hadn’t had any breakfast (that’s not unusual though). I couldn’t even make it through the three minute runs let alone the five minutes. My legs were fine and my breathing was ok (not great but not too awful) but my heart felt like it was going to burst out of my chest! I had my tracker on and my heart rate wasn’t any higher than it always is when running and I wasn’t going any faster than normal but today it just felt awful. So now I can’t decide whether to just write off today and attempt this run again on Wednesday or whether I need to go back to week 3?
