My run didn't happen ☹️

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate

So, I have been a bit out of sorts for the last week or 2 .

Had a week of not sleeping very well then also a stomach problem .

I ran on Saturday as I'd managed a few nights reasonable sleep but still felt tired , I was hoping to make it a long run but it didn't happen, I bailed out at 5k.

Since then had a stomach upset and not felt able to run ☹️

I was planning on running this morning as it has been improving but decided it still may have been unwise .

Don't really know what the problem has been , I feel it's on the mend so fingers crossed I can get back into my running routine shortly.

And most importantly, enjoy it ! 🙂

Sorry to hear you're feeling out of sorts and poorly. Hopefully you are on the upwards path now and will be back to your old self soon.

No point in running if you are not going to enjoy it - for me that is the whole point

Take care of yourself 🤗

Sorry you haven’t been well, Ian. Hopefully, as you say, you’re on the mend now and it won’t be too long before you’re fighting fit again. We know we should listen to our bodies and yours will tell you when it’s right to go out running. Get well soon ! 🤞👍

Thanks Jools, I was looking forward to it yesterday and was even planing a long one !

Now I haven't run and also cancelled my work for the day 😐

Take it easy and keep warm! My heating is on today. Weather appalling here, pouring with rain, no gardening for me today!

Instructor57

I think we are due the rain tomorrow ☹️

Thursday may be ok so we will see how I feel then 🤞

Ah...sorry to hear you’re not feeling too good at the moment 🤗. I think you’re doing the right thing to rest, while you build up a bit more strength.

It’s not likely to be too enjoyable if you’re pushing yourself too hard. Recovery is important as we want to run strong and enjoy it. Rest awhile and look after yourself Instructor57!! 🤗🤗 The best thing is...running will still be here waiting for you! 😉 I hope you will be feeling better very soon! 😁❤️

Sorry to hear that, I hope you’re feeling much better soon, it’s tough missing your runs when it’s become such a great part of your life. Good to hear you say if you’re not well enough to run you’re not well enough for work, if only I’d learnt that in my working life! Great that you’re taking good care of yourself 🤗

Sorry to hear Ian ... I know with your zest for running you must be disappointed and frustrated! But as a wise man told me when I bust my calf during the program, listen to your body and take time out if and when needed ... btw, that was you !!!

Am sure when you are feeling better, you’ll be back at it with even more vigour! Take it easy and take care.

But yes, no point just enduring the run , I want to enjoy the run .

Thank you for reminding me 😁👍

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well and have been having trouble sleeping.

That is amazing that you managed to run 5k when under the weather.

Rest up and feel better soon. You will soon be back out there enjoying your running.

Thank you !

Yes, my last run was a bit of a struggle, but if I'd stopped earlier, I would have needed to walk it anyway, 😂

Oh I'm sorry you don't feel great but it was best to listen to your body and not push yourself. I have some issues with my digestive system which can make me feel pretty awful now and then, so do understand it can lay you low sometimes.

Rest up, take care of yourself and you will be back to enjoying your runs very soon! 😊

Yes it's difficult at the moment, I have very little energy as well so not great for feeling like Running 😐

Hopefully back out soon and enjoying it

Hey Mister 👋

I feel your pain 🤗

Be kind to yourself... running will still be there when you’re up to it ... no pressure... take some time out to concentrate on you ... take it easy.

Thanks Jane !

I actually feel guilty if I'm not running and that is not helping me 😐

Hope you feel better soon. It’s that transition into the autumn. Always messes me up.

Oh, lots of sympathy- I have been plodding on with a low grade headache/ upset tummy/ tired bug too - I keep thinking it’s improving or gone & then it pops up again. ☹️

It will pass eventually no doubt. I have run some days & not others - listening to how I feel.

I hope you are feeling much better soon. 😄

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate in reply to Elfe5

Thanks !

Sounds just like I'm experiencing, but not the headache.

Hope we soon get better 🤞

Maybe a walk to see how you feel? hope you are in tip top condition soon

Instructor57Graduate in reply to WillowandSola

I am definitely not going away to a quarantined country again. I didn’t think I would struggle so much.. especially not running. 😁
