One of those days

Set out this morning in the pouring rain to do B210K week 2 run 2, normally I just run in a t shirt but because it was SO wet stuck on a light hoodie and a hat to keep me abit warmer, soon realised I was stilll way too hot despite the weather, and just couldn't get in the flow, I'm very limited to running routes around here, and the hill I normally run down (quite steep) was flooded at the bottom so I couldn't go any further than the bottom of the hill as I normally would, so I decided I'd just stick to a 30 or 35 minute run today, but it was SO hard! I felt exhausted, heavy legs, had a crampy type pain in my shoulder and only managed 2.66miles in 30 minutes whereas on monday I managed 4.11 miles and felt pretty good! Walked home soaked and defeated but oh well! Roll on the next attempt on Saturday....

Hey, sounds like you did very well! especially if you had a change of plan due to flooding etc. Some times it's a slog and you just have to put it down to experience. I had a rubbish run on Tuesday, felt good setting out but quickly discovered I'd left my mojo at home when I started running. I'm sure your next run will be much better!
