My goodness that came around a million times faster than I expected. In fact, it came around faster than I was prepared for and I am sitting here this morning wondering why my legs still think it’s Sunday afternoon.
Why do my legs still feel like lead, and what can I do to fix it?
I also realised after having made plans and committed to running ten (yes 10) flipping miles this coming Sunday, I have a doctors appointment at 10am, I’ll be changing that today otherwise I will use it as an excuse not to run.
Apparently I have to persuade my legs to run at least 6 miles tonight, I often think I’m not improving but I very clearly remember the days when running that far would require weeks of building up the distance, days of rest before, hours of preparation and stress, me laying on the sofa moaning like a drama queen for hours after and several days of wonky walking, now I can (relatively) comfortably knock one out (ooh err) in the evening after work with only a minimum of discomfort the next day.
So, no matter how hard it is, no matter how much you think you are not improving, look back at how far you have come – you will see a difference.
