After a horrible run in week 4 after an illness, my body thought it was ok to start again, but as soon as I started everything ached and I couldnt get my breath. Came away so upset and was absolutely convinced that I was just one of these people who couldnt run - end off.
This morning i just done 20 mins - well I never. So gobsmacked I am still in shock.
So I thought how about let you all know what I did different from other runs so far.
1. Yes its bad but I never had a brekkie, just a banana, the reason being Im a 45 year old mum of three with no pelvic floor - need i say more.
2. I used a foam roller to stretch my calf out before and after.
3. I dropped my speed a little.
4. I put all my fun loving, dancy, sing along tunes on my phone and had it set so my favorite ones would get me through the last few minutes.
RESULT - so non believers, when you hit your wee brick wall - adjust things and things will turn around. Good luck all x
