I’m at the half way point in my training plan between starting and my first half marathon.
Right now I feel pretty terrible, I have no motivation or willpower for all the running I need to do and pretty disheartened by the times I’m seeing.
I’m struggling with pace and my legs still a bit iffy from injury and I just don’t feel on top form.
Tuesday evening I ran home from Aerial again. This is such a short route I had to circle the park a bit now it’s lighter. I may have to go the opposite direction and extend this route now because it’s becoming kinda pointless to run on this evening.
Thursday I did more than my 45 min run and and did 5 miles to St James park and then home from work.
Sunday (today) I was supposed to do 8 miles. I pushed myself out for a run even though I didn’t want to and ended up doing 4.5 miles. Which really isn’t great.
I’m still stopping a lot and feel super slow, I’m not out of breathe or anything but I feel sluggish and like I mentally cannot do this. HOW DID I DO THIS BEFORE?!
After all my Easter schnanigans I’m going to work on fuelling my body better for running. Because I eat terribly at the moment and I don’t think that’s helping me at all.
