Ok my last session with current PT is on Thursday. I have had a few month of good session after good session where I haven’t really struggled to complete any session. Last week that changed. I have been getting to doing longer runs 5k 2 week back which was far easier than I expected and even tho it was me who decided that was far enough I probably could have managed further. Last week was by far the hardest session yet not the route but I just struggled from near enough start. I had been running every day a few km so that was likely why I struggled. I did manage 6k and faster time than week before but honestly I would of gladly stopped after 2k if there had been any chance of getting the session another day.
At end my PT admitted he hadn’t expected me to manage the full session. It has been a constant thing of me trying to get him to realise how much I can do and til last week I was getting there. I’ve suprised him in nearly every session it’s only last few week he has relaxed and been comfortable pushing me to do more. Last week he seemed to go back to not thinking I could manage as much. He’s still encouraging and knows I will be ok with pushing myself so still improvement from starting. This week I intend to ask him to give me chance at trying something he doesn’t think I’m quite ready for just so I can end on a positive note. I’m thinking 7k as after last week I don’t think he will think I could manage it or maybe shorter distance uphill.
I havent done nearly as much running running this week did 5k on Saturday and did 1k and 1.5k yesterday. Actually struggled a bit yesterday so thinking do a bit today see how I feel and maybe tomorrow, but don’t want to struggle on Thursday not sure if practice or rest would help most as I have rested and it’s not made it easier.
