I started running in April training for a 5K which I completed in June. The run was abroad and I made the mistake of flying very early the day before, plus drinking a glass of wine and not eating much the night before. We then had a two hour train journey on the morning of the race. By the time I got there I felt extremely ill and only just about managed to get myself into reasonable mental and physical shape to start the race in time. I completed the course in 36 mins (was aiming for 30) but it nearly killed me trying to get around the course, I can hardly remember it now.
When I got back home I found it impossible to motivate myself to run again until last week when I went out with my son for a short run. I only manged 1 mile instead of 4 which I was doing before, which after that break is probably understandable. On the way home on the run a woman pointed at me and shouted to all her friends that were with her "Look at that woman's fat belly and all her cellulite" I just laughed as I went past but I wanted to punch her :-) I shall be wearing baggier clothes to run in in future!
I expect I'm not the only person that this has happened to, but it does feel like it sometimes. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
