Had my morning run but for some reason I felt a bit worse afterwards, like I could have done better. I don't know why, it wasn't like I stopped or failed. I was running slightly slower than last time because my legs were sore (had been swimming the night before too). It was really windy and half the effort was pushing against the wind I always feel so motivated before and then less after. I think maybe because I don't get the sense of accomplishment, even though I have done what I need to. It's only been two runs, must keep reminding myself of that!
Speaking of which, can anyone recommend good stretches to do before and after? The reason I feel like I can do C25K is because it has a set routine which I can follow out, but I find stretching hard because I don't know what *type* I should be doing, or how even. I've tried searching online but I can't comprehend which leg stretches where from the diagrams! Also, are you meant to do stretches, then walk for five minutes before starting the run, or stretch in those five minutes??
Just realised, I should probably have searched in youtube for visual assistance. Silly me. But direction to good websites would help And now, I have work to get to.
(Apologies for my absolute lack of knowledge about anything at all related to running!)
