For every decent run, a pants one or two will follow. Today's run was a bit pants. I hate running in windy weather at the best of times and then today it was crazy windy. But that wasn't the problem, not really. Well, a bit. But my legs were just very tired today. Weirdly so. And then the horrible fainting feeling hit me, which I had a few weeks ago. Fortunately, I had a lightbulb moment about what was the problem. So, I know what the cause is this time - a medication change is behind it - so no mystery, just annoying. It's frustrating to feel like my pace was starting to return and then land up back into sludge mode again.
The thought goes through my head, 'When will I ever be able to run decent distances again?!?!?!' I'm fed up of doing short runs and while I know that I should appreciate just being able to get out there, it does get a bit tedious when your body isn't quite playing ball. Normally on a Thursday I try to do a hilly run with a few others, but I know that I haven't got it in me today, so am slacking off that effort too. Gah!!
Honestly, sometimes I am such a grumpy teenager about everything!
Let me think of the good things about today's run. I got my run in before it started to rain. I ran in the daylight. I ran a little further than yesterday, even if it felt harder. Plus, I snuck my run in before my husband came back from work so I won't have to pretend to be just going for a walk later on!!
And tomorrow is 'lie to the physio about how much running I've done' day.
