Went out for a run last night, did 4.3 miles (ish) in 40 mins...so distance and time were fine, but from pretty much the first step I just wanted to stop. I didn't stop, I kept going, but it hurt, LOTS. My shin hurt, I felt totally awkward/out of sync, my side hurt after about 3 miles, it was horrid. Just wanted to stop, give it up, stand there and cry.
Any suggestions...? Anyone else been through similar?
Until that point I've truly enjoyed my running and been very proud of my efforts. I'm going out again tonight and I'm trying a different route to change the scenery a bit...maybe that'll work, who knows.
