I’ve been a bit slack with my running of late for whatever reason (I’m blaming the heat….) so tonight I headed out the door with absolutely no distance in mind. I just wanted to run, and I wanted to keep my pace just under 6 minutes / km.
My first km was great – I didn’t start off too fast like I normally do… a comfortable 5:53, picking it up to 5:40 in the 2nd km. I kept at it and was feeling absolutely fab… all the way to 6km’s.
And then BOOM!
I hit the wall 😦
I tried running through it and managed for a bit and then hit another one. And then ran through that one and hit another one!! From 6km’s until the end of the run I was walking/running/walking… not running. I’ve been reading a whole bunch of running blogs lately and I feel so inspired when I read them, and on tonight’s run I kept them in mind which made me feel great… so what is it that makes me keep hitting the wall??
But on a lighter note – here are some of the latest photos of Cliffy, making friends with a box 😉
What do you do in a total slump to get you motivated again? How do you break that wall down, and keep it down?
