This year my running has not been as good as it was last year. Last year I was running at least 3 days a week, I had improved my distance and my stamina was constantly improving. This year I started doing other things. I joined new classes, lots of spinning, jumping exercises and I also started weight training in process I lost out on my usual running. I have been doing a few hill sprints but other than that no long distance runs. Somewhere at the back of my mind I was worried about my running stamina being affected but I also was hoping all my other workouts would cover up for the lost runs.
Anyways a few weeks back I decided to go for a run but I could not complete my run as planned. I got side stitches, my speed was not very good and I came back irritated. That’s when I decided I needed to include a few running sessions every week. It took me atleast 5 runs before I could get back to the point where I was last year. I needed a lot of patience because it did feel like a step back for me and it was very frustrating to stop at distance which I could pass comfortably a few months back. I was actually very disappointed with myself but being disappointed and crying about it doesn’t help I had to get up make a new plan that included running and get back out. Now I try to get in 3 running sessions every week.
