Well it's been quite a while since my last run (and what happened to my kick up the backside?! You lot are far too nice!) but I can now report that I've ended my lazy spell and am back in the habit. I don't know what was wrong with me the last couple of weeks, but the more I put it off the harder it was to get back into it.
I had a run this morning on the treadmill and found it a bit tough so at 3.3k I slowed down for my cool down walk. I decided to do my walk on an incline though because I felt guilty for stopping so soon. I kept going till 4.3k then realised I wasn't far off 5k so I broke back into a run and at a faster pace too just to finish it off. So I can't be too disappointed that I didn't run the whole distance, and walking uphill for a km then running the last 0.7k is better than just stopping at 3.3k. Well that's what I'm telling myself anyway!
From now on, no more messing about. I mean business!
Well done on everyone else's progress, reading about it all gave me the motivation I needed to get back to it. And congrats on the weight loss Watto!
