JaneyH - Thanks, I needed that!! And you are correct I was feeling VERY bad about Monday and Tuesday and that maybe affected me. Again you are correct re trying to be the runner I was 10 years ago, running means so much to me and I would give anything to go back 10 years knowing what I know now and stick in at my passion and I am sure I could have got near a 3:15 marathon. But I have to accept I am 56 and although I can still run and enjoy it, its never going to be the same.
But I KNOW I shouldn't be missing 3 consistant days and that annoyed me. I do run the same distance most days and same pace, need to mix it up but ever since I started running been mileage obsessed - must have a note of every run I ever done and distance/time. You seem to be doing well in the Gym but come back slowly, make sure your right as I am sure you will
B2B - Nah not on diet, in fact stuffing my face with chocolate !! that's gotta stop !!
JR - Yup something new needed
Now for the good bit !! What a difference a day makes !! (24 little hours, as someone once sang!!) 5.4 miles 9.27 pace and a record for this course and felt great !! So maybe I shouldn't let one day, one bad run get to me !!
Thanks all - love this thread a virtual team of inspiration !!
