Woo hoo! That feels good.
I decided to bring my graduate run forward by 24 hours. During yesterday I realised that part of my struggle on Sunday was I had spent Saturday “focussing on hydrating”, aka worrying about the run and psyching myself out.
I’d given myself two rest days and last night I realised I was ready.
Up mega early to avoid the heat and off I went. Slow start to the running paid off - no ragged breath, no doubting voice. I ran to the metre the same distance as Sunday but with almost none of the pain.
I’m now a sweaty mess and need a shower.
Thanks to everyone for your support through this - I would’ve given up weeks ago without this forum.
Whatever run you have next, enjoy it x
