How on earth have I managed to get to week 9?!? Before starting this programme I absolutely DESPISED running- I was adamant that I’m not a runner, I will never be a runner and quite frankly I just don’t like running😂 Who knew a global pandemic and a national lockdown is what it would take to persuade me to give running a go🤣
Run 2 today wasn’t my best run, but I still plodded on to the end😊 My motivation levels were a little low today, perhaps due to the fact that it took me about 15 minutes to find somewhere to park, and then my wonderful parking experience was accompanied by a lovely scratched alloy😭😩 So by the time I gave up and plonked my car into some trees at the side of the car park, I really REALLY could not be bothered.
Anyways... back to the run🤣 I think I started off pretty well, but my energy levels dropped quite quickly! I was also running solo today which probably didn’t help. I couldn’t really get into a rhythm, (normally I don’t have a problem with this) and my legs felt so heavy!!!
I also should mention that after my run my left shin started to hurt and felt really tight- I got home about 10 minutes ago and it still feels tender! Has anyone else had any issues with this? I’ve had plenty of problems with sore and achy calves but never my shins!
I’m hoping to complete run 3 on Friday if all goes to plan- I’m so so close to the finish line now, it feels so exciting and a little bit emotional but I CANNOT WAIT FOR FRIDAY!!!😃🎓🎓🥳🥳
