I have been running for over 20 years now since i was 16 ,in my good days i used to run four 10k`s a week with no problems and loved every second of every run.my pb was 42.00 mins
Now im 39 and struggling to get 2 runs in a week ,as pain in my legs is unbelievable and funny enough the pain actually goes away when running ,i say my legs as they are sore all over but have primary pain in my right knee and left heel and can barely walk next day after run and my running is just getting slower and slower my time atm is just under 1hr,and i also feel so tired.
I just so want to keep running as i love it but its getting so hard to keep myself motivated.
as above just looking for something to get me going again lol.
well yes im always tempted to do other things to get a faster times but its just easy to slip my running gear on and just do my normal run,then home and get on with what i have to do.
But in all due respect to myself i ran the bupa edinburgh run today which involved a lot of hills,so my time was a bit slower than usual but i felt it was a lot more demanding,so hence my usual time will be down slightly and i feel as though ive burnt a few more calories than normal.
Im in the same boat really but i know myself i should be mixing it up as i am in my comfort zone 4x 10ks a week at 49-50mins, i.e taking different routes , running faster , trying different keep fit routines .but i just love running to much so nothing else really inspires me,and i like my little route but hey im happy .
well im sure he wont be running that way and that time again, and with the yellow shorts .shot himself in the foot ..twat!!.
I know what its like sometimes,you think sometimes people should move because your a runner because your trying to beat a p.b or going down hill etc etc.But at the end of the day they have as much right to be on the pavement as us.But there is some pratts go out their way to intensionally get in your way,but i just bite my tounge and carry on!.
So i hope the twat with the yellow shorts gets dealt with im sure there was no need hope the kids ok.
