Morning! I got up this morning and got ready to start week 8. I didn’t get the best sleep and woke with a sore throat. I almost didn’t go but last run was Saturday and don’t want to lose momentum.
Went and struggled for the first 5 mins, kept wanting to clear my throat and my breathing was heavy. Was determined to keep going though. 2 mins after Jo told me I’d been running for 5 mins, my shoelace came undone. Swore, stopped, bent down to do up and my overhanging tummy hit my phone in my belt and activated Siri. Got my music back running, checked the app (had it pause on me once before when someone FaceTimed me). It appeared to still be counting so I put it back in my belt and continued. It was getting warmer out and my calves were aching. I was longing for Jo to tell me I was halfway but she never did. In the end I lost heart and started to walk. Upon checking my phone, the app had paused 😡. Checked Strava app and it said I’d been moving for 24 mins, so I’m guessing I must have run for 19. Walked for 2more and then fast forwarded C25k app and tried to run for the last 5 minutes but found it a real struggle. Probably managed 3 before giving up and walking back to the car.
Feeling a bit gutted, though wondering if I perhaps shouldn’t have even bothered going out at all today. Home and my throat is now very very sore.
Feeling a bit sorry for myself to be honest!
