I have been plodding on with 30 min runs 3 times a week after graduating but I am having problems in that I am not enjoying it in the slightest, I am not getting any faster (still takes around 40 mins to complete 5k) my stamina is not increasing - still feel like I am dragging my sad old carcass around the route and I don't seem to be getting any trimmer.
On top of this I have started to get numbness in my right foot after about 10 mins.
I have an under active thyroid so I know that my energy doesn't replenish in the same way as everyone else but the fact that I am not progressing in any way is disheartening.
I know this sounds a little like a pity party but I am interested in whether any others who have been in the same situation had any tips they could share to start enjoying running at all?
I tell myself that I have come so far in 6 months but......
