Its been quite frustrating. And its been hard to keep running.
After graduating couch to 5K and getting a 5K in the bag on week 9 run 2 its just been really hard! I had problems with my calf muscle /achilles tendon. I got poorly with a bit of a generic bug - (not sure what but not Covid). I had to have a a colonoscopy so that meant days when i could not run as I was starving and then having to stay next to toilet due to teh moviprep clearing my bowel - then although it went Ok afterwards I was just wiped out. And work has also afforded me very little time to run it.
But I have managed 3 runs - the first two were such a struggle. Today I enjoyed it a nice slowish 4,6 K but with lots of hills involved . Probably could have made it a 5K but discretion is probably the better part of valour - didn't want to set of my calf off again and delay my next run or exhaust my energy stores . But I am glad to be back running again after all the the disruption.
Probably should take a short drive to some flat terrain just to give me a boost. I live on the side of a hill and the terrain doesn't really allow for contouring !
Jut glad I'm back in the game but its hard right now! Hopefully i wil be able to run again Monday !
