I've found it really difficult to get out for a run this past 6 weeks or so. I'm really struggling to find the time.
Mornings are a no-no now. Our front door is a heavy modern fire door and tends to wake the kids up when I creep out at 5am. This does not make for a happy wife.
I get home from work and spend a couple of hours with the kids and put them to bed at 8 and then spend some time with my wife. By that time, it's 9pm, I've been up for nearly 16hrs and in this cold dark cold climate, it's not that motivating to head out that late at night.
Which leaves weekends, and I try to get out for a run every weekend, and if I have a days holiday from work, then I'll go for a run mid-week too.. but at the moment, I'm literally squeezing one run a week... and I *hate* it.
I'm now struggling to run 5k without stopping, let alone upping my distances to the magical 10k I want to hit and run comfortably.
Anyone got any tips or tricks?
