So l graduated 2 months ish ago & was loving it. Did my first park run too in 41 mins. Slow but still 5k! Then got some very bad news causing lots of stress still ongoing and the last month my running has been terrible, stopped completely for 2 weeks. Back out there now but I am struggling to run for more than 5 mins at time. I feel so tense l can't seem to get a rhythm going and soon as it hurts l stop whereas l used to push through. I even tried going back to week 4 on the app but struggling - l get annoyed with myself.
Any advice how to stay with it. I know running would be so good for me with all stress right now
