I’ve been running for just under a year now, I’ve previously done a half marathon and other 10k races. I have another 10k coming up at the end of September but a couple of weeks ago I was ill and couldn’t train and my diet was also affected. Today was my first day getting back into it and oh my god...I honestly thought I was going to collapse!! I have never ever run so badly, I had chest pains, difficulty getting my breath back and sore legs... I knew it was going to be difficult but please someone tell me it’s going to get easier!! Today I ran just short of 3 miles and if I’m in this state running at that distance then I have no idea how I’ll manage 10k in 3 weeks!! Any advice you guys can offer to help me get my stride back would be great x
