Went out on W6R2 this morning. Had the usual 'I'm not sure I can complete this' feeling during the first 10 minute run. Started the second more slowly and by the half way point it was really hard to keep moving. Soon after that i realised that there really was no way i could complete and kept going to the next lamp post for support.
Very conveniently placed grass verge where I stopped (outside the local clinic) and i had to sit and then lie down in roughly the recovery position to recover. Generated some interest from concerned passers by and a kind gentleman stayed by me until I was able to move again.
Managed to get myself the 3/4 mile back uphill home though somewhat more slowly than usual.
Thinking that to rebuild confidence I'll temporarily at least part company with Laura and do a few 'free' runs letting my body dictate how long I run for and slowly increasing before picking up the programme again..... or just do that at my own entirely.
