Hi, I'm a newbie on this forum. I've been running since September 2014 and attempting to train for Reading half marathon in March. Doesn't help that I slipped on ice 10 days ago and landed right on my coccyx which is incredibly painful!!! One good thing (!) is that sitting and lying down hurt more than anything else so I am attempting to keep training.
Sunday is my "long run" day, so off I went this morning in the drizzle. After a mile I thought "this is going to get better, right?" - heavy legs, sluggish, sore coccyx, just no energy. Wrong! Eventually managed 5.5 miles in an hour and walked home (0.3 miles) feeling sorry for myself.
I am trying to tell myself that it's just one bad run, everyone has them - tell me I'm right!
I did run 13.1 miles last year (alone) so I know that I can do it...
