Hi used to run quite a bit. Did the FLM in 2006 in 5 and a half hours. Pretty much not done anything since but have decided to start up again. Did run1 walk1, but found that too easy. So did run2 walk1, again was a little too comfortable with that so upped it to run3 walk1 and think this may be the level that I need to start at (quite chuffed actually that I'm not as unfit as I thought I was!!) But where do I go from here???
But I didnt RUN THE MARATHON and I think thats a big part of it.... I walked quite a long way and finished way outside of what I thought I could. I had several injuries in the run up to it which didnt help as the longest run I did was 16 miles (and that had walking in it due to injury!) I feel as though I have failed and that I dont really deserve the medal... And finding even 2 miles hard afterwards has just added to that sense of failure!!!
Hi I have run twice since FLM, both times I felt like an absoulte beginner and am feeling very demoralised! Does anyone else feel this bad? Feel like not running again..... Have lost my motivation even though I have entered a 10 miler in June.
