Here’s a tiny update to go with my titchy tiny run for today. It was short and slow but I’m not going to analyse it too deeply, at least I’m back out there and still breathing at the end of it.
It’s been about 4 weeks since my last run, I fell into a deep motivational rut that coincided with killer back ache and just as my physio sorted me out enough for me to stand unaided I got girl flu. Then that flipping lingered until it turned into another motivational rut and even the latest copy of runnersworld couldn’t drag me back into the fold.
Fortunately I’ve been getting harassed from the sidelines and so today I finally managed to push myself out of the door, slap bang into the face of a force 9.
Next weeks half has been cancelled due to the complete lack of training and the following weeks 10 miler is in the undecided zone. I’m off out again tomorrow for a slightly extended run so I’ll have better idea how much fitness I lost over the last month.
