I have found myself getting a little obsessed with Strava, the split times and the distance covered. I guess like other things in life, if you push yourself too hard, you begin to lose the sense of enjoyment. On my previous 2 runs, I really pushed myself but wasn't getting the same sense of accomplishment I felt before, despite beating my previous distance covered. So today I decided to ditch Strava, slow my pace and just run for enjoyment. What a difference it made! I felt so relaxed all the way through and wasn't gasping for breath at the end. I have decided to approach the final two runs in the same way!
Also got myself a small, lightweight bum bag that I was able to strap around my waist so that I didn't have to carry my phone. Really helped my shoulder, so thanks for the advice there!
Happy running. Hope you all have a lovely week 😊
