Well I set off tonight thinking I've done the 20 minute run, how hard can a 5, 8 & 5 minute run be?
Boy I was wrong. It got off to a bad start when I couldn't get the podcast to play so had to use the timer on my phone. This really knocked me as a) I had to keep faffing with the phone changing all the times and b) I really missed Laura's encouragement and advice.
I managed all 3 of the runs but I really didn't enjoy it all and was just waiting for it to be over. When I'd finished my cool down I was really fed up and had to force myself to do stretches as I really didn't want to do them.
When I walked in my husband thought I'd not managed the run as normally I skip in on a high and blab away at how great it was - tonight I just sat on the sofa completely dejected.
After about half an hour I realised that I'd not had any lunch today and did myself 2 hot cross buns (it is Easter!). I'm wondering if lack of food might have made me a bit bleurgh? Also I was warm whilst running but once I got in, I really felt like the cold had got into my bones and couldn't warm up (still have blanket on now).
I know I should be grateful that I completed the run but after the high of the 20 minute run, this was a real letdown
Oh well, chalk it up to experience and carry on I guess.
Happy Easte fellow runners
