5x50 Day 15. Progress is Frustrating

Day 15 of the 5x50 Challenge, walk, jog or cycle 5k a day for 50 days.

Today I'm frustrated.

Two weeks into the challenge and my fitness progress seems to have slowed. I kinda knew this would happen but that doesn't stop the frustration.

If you don't already know from earlier blog posts I took up running back in June. I'd signed up to take part in the Great Scottish Run 10k back at the start of this month. Back in June I couldn't run 1k without stopping! Between then and the 10k I took huge leaps forward in ability while training for the race.

Over the last 10 days I've really started to struggle to beat my personal best 5k time. I keep getting really bad stitches! If anything, I'm getting slower!

This evening, homework. What am I doing wrong? ha! Everyday is a school day!

Frustrated... but happy to have completed a 5k in daylight! It's pretty much always dark when I'm out taking on my evening jogs after work.

Daylight on todays 5k!

Right, I'm off to use my foam roller. Self inflicted torture, ha!
