I've been injured for last 9wks, been dead fed up, not done any other exercise (stupid!!) and have put a stone on. Have been thinking and planning all the stuff i'm gonna do when i get back running, i'm gonna go this race and that race and lose loads of weight and be dead slim and fit and full of energy etc etc..
Today, I'm finally injury free, new orthotics in and off I went on a beautiful day for my first run, went off road through the woods, full of enthusiasm....
I was rubbish!
Dead unfit, was out for 30mins and had to stop about 5 times cos i was was out of breath. Felt really heavy and no rhythmn and all self conscious cos of how slow I was going.
Just for background info, i' ve only ever done 10min miles but could comfortably run 6 miles at that pace and really enjoy it.
Am so fed up, can't believe i'm going to have to start from scratch again.
Think I just need a pep talk please...
