Says it all really Ten days ago I completed W5R1 with relative ease and felt on top of the world - the best run yet. Since then, I've tried R2 three times now and feeling quite dejected. Don't know if I've just hit the wall as it were or whether my circumstances for the past two weeks are affecting me and my routine. Up til now I've been going to the gym in my lunch hour three times a week and doing the runs on the treadmill. However I've been working away can only get to the gym after work. The "gym" at the hotel is poor compared to my usual gym, and as there are only a couple of treadmills which are busy or work intermittently, my focus is disrupted. This means I've only managed two proper sessions since my last successful run. I've been tempted to go out on the road but it's hardly the weather here and I don't know the area well enough. I have managed an 8 + 5 minute run; a 8 min after 15 mins on bike; and today couldn't even do the first 8 so switched to 3x5min as in W5R1 - which is going backwards I had new trainers on today which affected me a bit but that had nothing to do with the breathlessness, fatigue and stitches. I've still got at least another week and half to go before I can get back to my usual routine and am really begining to lose hope - I had hoped to do a parkrun at the beginning of March as my "graduation" but feel like thats not going to happen. Please tell me that it's not just me and this the mental and personal challenges that Laura talks about on the podcasts - I need a bit of a boost!
