So I graduated c25k in June and was comfortably running 5k 3 times per week, had even started looking for longer routes I could do. Then life got in the way and I didn't run for 12 days (I was still fairly active in that time with camping and busy with family) I tried to run last Saturday after those 12 days off and just couldn't do it... managed 2km them had to walk as was so out of breath and legs aching. Managed to run/walk to get to 4km then stopped. Monday was the same, pushed myself to 3km then walked/run a bit until I got up to 4km again. Just tried again today and HAD to walk at 1.5km as my legs felt so heavy and mouth so dry. Feeling sooo frustrated with it now that by having that time off ice ruined all my progress, can it really disappear that quickly? Should I just bin my trainers and give up, maybe I'm just not cut out for running!?
Feel like I need to go back to c25k week 4 or something but that seems crazy that I've 'lost' all that progress so quickly.
Sorry for ranting, just feel so annoyed!
