Today's run was really hard
I fell over the other day on my run and thank goodness I'm not injured. But my ankle came up a bit stiff and a little swollen this morning. There seems to be some sort of bruise so I'm wondering if I bashed it when I fell and did not realise because I was so focused on my bloody knee and brushed shin.
So I ran gently, carefully, and at a steady pace.
I did the two 10 minutes. I was looking forwards to it but when I was actually running it all felt physically difficult. My legs were like tree stumps and I felt like I was dragging my body around.
I also got two terrible stitches too.
I wanted to stop so badly.
The second 10 minutes was the hardest, when Jo said I had 5 minutes left I wanted to give up. But somehow that last 5 minutes flew by, I don't know where they went or how I did it. I just did.
I feel like I've had some amazing runs lately so it was only a matter of time until I had a bad run or two where it all just feels like a slog.
Over the next 24 hours I'm going to keep my feet up as much as I can, do some gentle stretches and drink a ton of water, meditate and get myself in a more positive headspace.
Hopefully I'll be on much better form for my 25 minute run on Sunday.
A few people had said after w5r3 the next two runs are killah, they were right.
Its worth it though, it all is. I love the feeling I get after these runs. It is amazing.
Thanks for reading
Let me know if any of you still have bad running days or not?
PS. I think Me and Doozer look like murderers in this photo. We're not murderers, I promise!
