Oh gosh I have just looked back at my last few blogs ( I don't post that often) and it seems I only write a blog whan I want to have a good old moan! I had a wonderful run in the pouring rain on thursday did 3 miles in 38 mins and could have kept going so I couldn't wait to get out on Sunday (it would have been daturday but I had other committmnets). It was nice and cool but not raining. Anyway it was bloody awful! Places on my body were hurting that have never hurt before, I felt stiff, achey, lumbering, old, fat, the bloody lot!!!! It felt like I was running through treacle (anyone have those awful dreams where you are trying desperately to run away from something and your legs are like lead ,wading though treacle?) Oy! I only managed 30 mins and 2.4 miles. I had planned to run 3 miles but I had to force myself to keep going to 30 minute mark. My ankles hurt (they have never hurt!) and my feet went numb (this has occassionally happened before). I had slept well, more than usual and it was late morning when usually I run after a full days' work, so in theory I should have had more energy. Can't work out what went wrong! Ahhh! It has wrecked my confidence about going out again. Just when I was thinking of braving a Parkrun soon. I was trying to get closer to the 30 min mark for 5k before I braved it so I am trying to work on my speed.
Also does everyone still always observe the rest day rule post graduating? My non C25K running friends often run every day if they can..
