Have been really struggling with my runs over the past few weeks. Really tight hamstrings, not sure why. Even avoided a run last Friday, just could not face it. What a waste, though balanced it by a 13km walk. Still its not the same as jogging.
So in the end I thought lets do smething to get you back on track. Took the advice of another graduate and went back to using the podcasts. Started on week 5 last week and did
week 5 run 1 but did it twice on the same run
Then week 5 run 2 twice, on the same run
the dreaded week 5 run 3 - 20 mins plus week 5 run 1 afterwards.
AND you know what it works.!!!!!!!!!!
I feel so much better, somehow at the moment the 3 or 5 min walks in between allows me to recover.
Did week 6 run 1 today plus an extra 5 mins, was actually smiling at the end of my run.
So if your getting stuck, fed up , feel like your going nowhere, don't forgot those 'old podcasts'
they can get you back on track.
