I guess it had to happen at some point. There was always going to be one run that was going to trip me up, and tonight's run was the one. I'm actually a little surprised that it hasn't happened before, but such is life... I'm not exactly sure what went wrong. The first three minute run section was fine. The next run section of five minutes was OK, although I struggled a bit in the final 45 seconds or so. The next three minute section was pretty much the same as the first had been, so I thought I'd recovered. A minute or so into the final five minute second and I discovered that everything was definitely not OK and I came grinding reluctantly to a halt. Walked for 30 seconds, started running again, but no; less than a minute later there was nothing there. I didn't think I was doing anything different from the first run of this week, but tonight it just didn't happen for me; which is a bit of a disappointment. So, rest, regroup, and try again in a coup
Somewhere along the line, I decided that becoming a runner might be a good idea and I embarked on the Couch to 5K plan. Within 9 months, I'd run my first Half Marathon. This is where I share my thoughts and feelings about my running experiences.
