I got through week 5 alright, and even though I was dreading the 20 minute final run, I got through it ok. I was expecting the first day of week six to be easier in comparison - it was less running, with breaks in between, but I really really struggled and I have no idea why. I ran at roughly the same time of day, same clothes, shoes everything. My legs ached, I got stitch (which I haven't had for a couple of weeks) and I really wasn't sure I'd complete the run (I did, but felt a bit down about how tough it had been)
I tend to run Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so I had Saturday and Sunday with no running. Did anyone else struggle with shorter runs after a long one?
