This past Sunday I was to run the W1D3. I had successfully completed the first two days (albeit slowly).
The main difference from my "normal" run time was that it was close to 9:30am. The sun was out and it wasn't too hot. I normally run around 5:30-6:00 am and the sun is just starting to rise at the end of my run.
It wasn't hot, but I was HOT! I am hoping this is why I did not do well. I ran the first two intervals (ugly!) and then just could not run any more. I had never experienced this before and completed all of C25K without any bad runs. I didn't get it. I tried to run, would get a few paces and then could not move any further. I ended up walking home the rest of the 2 miles almost in tears. I was nauseous and defeated.
The worst part, I haven't run since. I woke up early this morning and completely psyched myself out of running. I know I need to "get back on the horse" so to speak, but I am afraid I have hit some sort of limit. Maybe this is all I can do? Ah, I know this isn't good self-talk and wonder if anyone has ever gone through this.
Any support or advice is welcome. :)
