Well I've had a slow couple of weeks, I've been suffering from terrible migraines, so cut down to two runs a week and when I went out on Wednesday only managed to run for 6/7 minutes, but did walk my whole 4.5k route.
Can I blame the torture of EURO 2012?
I've had another change to my medication last week as well and for the first time in long while I'm coming off something that makes me sleep 12 hours a night, which will hopefully give me a couple of hours (at least) back in my day and I might just become a morning person again! They are doubling the dose of the other medication I take which gives me lots of pins & needles when I am active so it will be interesting to see how that affects my running.
For now I would love to set a target to help keep me motivated, there is a 10k race coming up in the summer that I'd be interested in, but with my health being a bit higildy pigildy, I'd be so disappointed to have to pull out.
So that leaves me with the realisation that for now I should just be happy to run fullstop. Even my 6 minute run on Wednesday was better than nothing, I didn't spend the rest of the regretting not trying. We all need a reality check every now and again so here's mine, this time 3 years ago I barely I had the confidence to walk anywhere on my own due to my health. So at the minute I can't get out and run a 10k like last summer, but at least I can run
