Well after a week off to recover from a piriformis injury, I set off today to pick up where I left off with week 6 run 1. I failed miserably
During the warm up walk I could feel my piriformis muscle in my butt and that's when the gremlins came out to play ! I managed the first 5 minute run ok ( it was not effortless though!) during the next 8 minutes I had to stop after about 5 mins but after 30 seconds I started up again. The last 5 minutes I only managed to run for 2.5 mins!!
Once I started to run my piriformis was not an issue at all, it was basically down to my legs feeling like 10 tonne weights
I'm gutted, I was doing so well before getting injured. Those pesky gremlins really got to me today. I'm sure I could put todays bad run down to loads of reason (confidence after injury, running later in the morning due to being off work etc etc )
I think I'm going to go back to week 5 and start again on my next run. It will mean running without Laura as I'm having the same issue as others with iTunes!
Wish me luck people, I think I'm going to need it!
