Oh dear! Today was the day (one week after graduation) that I decided to go outside. Off I went on a relatively short course. To be honest I didn't really have any expectation apart from giving it a go. I didn't time myself or record the mileage I just wanted to take it easy and see what happened. It was great to be outside and I did enjoy the rain and the scenery, but I just couldn't seem to run for any real length of time, it's like the last ten weeks haven't happened and I had no strength. I went for 20 mins or so with walking breaks and came home. Not content with having a decent run I then warmed my muscles up with some good stretches and off I went. Mentally I wasn't there because I was disappointed in my ability and as I ran my reoccurring groin strain came back. Deep in my right groin I get this horrid pain that just makes putting one leg in front of the other really hard. I tried going faster to run it through but no joy, I gave up....a really bad day all round really.
I think I'm going to go back a few weeks back on plan and see what happens, I really need the structure of working towards something and without it I just seem to flounder.
Hey no! Just cross thati did nine weeks without never ever once walking and now I'm supposed to be a graduate I can't seem to manage five mins
