On the weekend, I started to run again.
It’s been about 6 weeks since I’ve gone for a run – and it showed.
First run: I set aside 45 minutes and I planned to do a 5km run.
I felt sooooooooooo crappy throughout the whole run! I didn’t go very fast. But I was cursing and swearing the WHOLE way. I felt like absolute and utter shit!! I felt wrong, uncoordinated, slow, aching and heavy. It felt like it was the WORST run I have ever done! It was all wrong. But I did it. My watch ticked over to 5km, I immediately stopped and wanted to cry out with frustration. Ugh!!!
I was soooo pissed off with myself, that I determined to try again tomorrow. I planned to do another run the next day.
Second run: I set aside 35 minutes and planned to do a 5km run.
OH MY GOD THIS FELT BETTTER. I went pretty slow. My motion was a lot smoother and lighter. I felt good.
At the end of it, I felt that I could have run for longer. I was content and a bit proud at myself.
Next week, I plan to do a longer run. 10km perhaps.
Nothing like a bit of failure to get myself up and kick some ass!
