So I graduated in August, and as I suspected the whole running thing has gradually fallen by the wayside. It started with getting a little bit poorly for a couple of weeks combined with the intense heat. It really had an effect on me and found I was only managing 15 minutes at a time after that. In a way I think the fact that I could only manage this de-motivated me as I felt I had "failed" which i know is silly! So my runs have been fewer and further in between, but I feel so lethargic and "doughey" I need to get back out there!
Last night I went out and managed 10 minutes non stop, then walking and a bit more running for another 5 minutes and I actually felt really great. So I just need a bit of motivation I think. With the unpredictable weather I am worried that I'll never keep it up fully. I am thinking of joining the gym but even the cheapest one is an expense I can't really afford!
If anyone has had a similar thing happen and over-come it please let me know how you did this, I need a bit of inspiration!!!!
