Well yesterday I went out for my first post graduation run. It was a disaster. I had to take my littlest in the pushchair - which I have done many times. I managed 3.2k and I had to stop. Along the route the wind was against me, which made it hard going. I have a cold, littlest daughter hasn't been sleeping all week as she's had a virus and I'd just done a 12 hour shift at work the day before (I'm a nurse). I think I knew from the start of the run that it was going to be hard work, but so far I've never given up on a run. I feel a bit deflated and am now doubting my ability. Dreading my next run in case I fail again.
In reality I think my body just didn't have the energy, and I know everyone has bad runs but it's so frustrating...!
