exercise: easy run
10 min brisk walk
21 minute disgusting run
15 min walk home
I picked up my orthotics from Pod first thing this morning and hit the streets for a 30 minute easy run around 11am. OMG!! It was disgusting. I only lasted 15mins and then had a walk break, and then only lasted another 6 minutes 😳 My legs felt like lead balloons. They were so heavy and the new adjustments on orthotics felt positively weird. I think it is safe for me to say I am an imposter in the runnning world. Am I ever going to feel fit and strong when I run?? Sometimes I feel as though with my running, I take two steps forward and hundred steps back. I can’t seem to get momentum from day to day. I guess I will have to ease the orthotics in but not sure why my legs didn’t feel “fresher”. I haven’t run since last Saturday.
My Polar is screaming at me “16 days” to go for Run to G but I don’t think I will be up to running 10 straight kms which is a bit disappointing. I will probably have to settle for a walk/run 😦 I checked out what time the 5km was on as I probably won’t feel like such a loser runing 5 straight km’s as I sure I can do that but the 10am starting time is better for me. I plan on “trying to run” again on either Sunday or Monday. My regime calls for a 45 minute easy run but after today’s shocker I will see what happens on the day!
Well I have written the email to cancel the gym membership, just have to get the courage to send it, you know how sometimes it is hard to change things when you are in a comfort zone 😆 Everything in my brain is telling me to cancel it as I know it will be much better for me but then it turn’s on me and says your comfortable where you are, stay and don’t change things. Don’t you just hate self talk sometimes??
