just doing deliberately slow runnign at the moment slinger to rebuild some endurance and get some mileage in the legs following a summer lay off. May think about introducing some quicker stuff in a month or two, when i've been running consistently for a bit
another slow, clammy plod home last night. Having a rest day today, my legs are feeling pretty tired, and don't want to ask too much of them too soon.
I can't bear to run in the heat, which is why I end up having a hiatus each summer. I wilt in the heat, whether i'm running or not, and am looking forward to the cold winter months, when I can feel the chill on my cheeks when running. Horses for courses I guess.
25 miles for the week / month. 721 miles for the year. plod plod.
i've repeatedly lost motivation following a target race. takes me a couple of months before i start to miss it, then wish i'd have continued at least to run a bit to keep things "ticking over" so I wouldn't have to regain all that lost fitness. anyway, no harm in cutting back, having a break, but if you're simply in a trough, and you need to train for a half in 6 weeks, try just telling yourself you'll lace up your trainers, nothing more, then when you've done that, you'll go out of the front door, nothing more. then after that, tell yourself that you'll start jogging, no more. Before you know it, the blood will be pumping and you'll feel into it.
