Wow, just back from W2r2 and my god did I struggle! The reasons are two fold!
Number one, I found myself having a small glass of red wine after a stressful day at work, this turned into a bottle and a bit! I also did not eat properly yesterday, and drank more calories than I ate!! That's not good when your body has to cart 20 stone around on a walk/jog.
Secondly, and I hope someone else has experienced this, when I run I get a pain at the back of my rib cage which makes it very difficult to breathe, I'm guessing this is either muscles complaining about the extra work, or perhaps my lungs are growing....I don't know, but it defiantly effected me! When I walk I'm fine, it's the extra jogging motion.... I don't smoke and never have by the way!
Anyway I'm away in Crewe on Thursday, so will either find a route on google, or use the treadmill in the hotel gym.
See you at the finish line.
