Humph. I am not a very happy girl with my running at the moment. I was doing so well and 5km was starting to be a really comfy distance with an ever improving time and then something (I still do not know what) happened – my whole body felt like lead and tired, my legs didn’t want to move, my lungs felt like they were working at a quarter of what they should be. So frustrating!
My times were getting slower and slower and my sub 36 minutes soon became 40 minutes again! Shock and horror!
Not sure there is an exact science with this whole running thing but I have been told there are a number of contributing factors, which I understand but surely they can’t carry on for weeks at a time!
Moving swiftly along from feeling sorry for myself, I have incorporated more biking into my weekly routine until I can get over myself and back on track.
Do you also go through slumps? What do you do when it happens?
