It was the last day of August & I still hadn’t done this month’s half marathon. I was determined it was going to be done- despite knowing that my quads & gluts weren’t really up to the job.
That’ll teach me! I have never ached so much during or after a long run. It was really rather difficult & served to remind me that I am not invincible & my body will certainly tire before my mind. I know, such a grim thought!
I’ve resolved to rationalise my running behaviour & approach my hobby with more sense & sympathy for my joints & muscles. I just need some time & encouragement to arrive at this mindset!
