I started this year with three short runs with The Interupter. I was supposed to keep this up as part of my gradual getting back into being able to do 5k. I’ve had to keep walking when she runs, I just can’t seem to do it.
I’m tired and my muscles really hurt, much more than they ever did before. I’m frustrated as all hell about this, this should be an easy way of easing myself back in, but it isn’t, I can’t do it and the frustration and the sheer lack of ability where I expected it to be. The disappointment isn’t even something I think I can describe.
The notion that I can’t do a simple couch to 5k type programme is just so utterly dispiriting. I’ve run a marathon and yet I can’t do this? I have no words, just the disappointment right now.
