ALL ABOARD THE STRUGGLE BUS! It seems like it’s going on all around at the moment so I’m glad I’m not the only one feeling the november running drag. What’s going on?! Hard hard hard running this week. Tired body. Reluctant mind. 4 rubbish miles (in my book), only half the miles I’d planned to do... RAHHHHH #RUNNINGISHARD #autumnrunning #headwind #galeforce #nomotivation #heavylegs #sluggishrun #garminforerunner235 #spibelt

    My winter blues have well and truly set in. But it does help a little to know I’m not alone. 👭🧡

    Feel so much better reading this. I think this is one of the reasons I joined a netball team - getting the cardio in using different methods! I can't just run or i go out of my mind. X

    I am on that bus. In bed. 😣😣😣. After a marathon pb on Sunday i have now been hit over the head with the flu. Tried to run through it . Failed. Ended up 4 miles from home in Sainsburys loos, crying, swearing and acting very much like a 2 year old. The 4 miles back were like hades himself. 😖😖😖Eventually the bus will stop by your house. You will get off and run again like you always do. Give it two days. Completely off. You will be itching to do parkrun (and a bit more) and you can make up your yearly total another week. 🤗🙁

  • @whatcharlierannext 12:46 PM Nov 22, 2017

    @embackhouse well I hope so. I’m not able to parkrun this sat as got plumbers over in the morning but I might go out for some miles later in the day. We’ll see how tomorrow goes...! X

  • @fiona_runs_happy 12:46 PM Nov 22, 2017

    I’m on that bus too. It’s so hard at the moment. It’s my first year of running and I’ve never been through a winter before. Is it always this hard? 😩

  • @whatcharlierannext 12:49 PM Nov 22, 2017

    @fiona_the_blue_kangaroo yep winter months will push your buttons...

  • @whatcharlierannext 12:49 PM Nov 22, 2017

    @fiona_the_blue_kangaroo BUT it’s wholly possible to make it! Just more of an effort unfortunately x

  • @running_mum_of_six 12:51 PM Nov 22, 2017

    I'm feeling the same! Struggle, struggle, struggle.......😭

  • @lil_em_loves_to_run 12:58 PM Nov 22, 2017

    I'm on the struggle bus with you, 10.5 miles today and I haven't ran that slow in months, every step was an effort 😕 Thankfully the struggle bus will have to stop for petrol soon and we can jump off 😊 On the plus side we got some miles done 😀x

  • @roadtorunner 12:58 PM Nov 22, 2017

    I am feeling the struggle and the draaag of this month too. You're not alone😂💪

  • @kellogs_ontherun 1:08 PM Nov 22, 2017

    I hear ya! 🙋‍♀️ going to attempt second run later as earlier was a write off. Could just be wasting my time today though! 😑 xx

  • @jersey_girl08 1:14 PM Nov 22, 2017

    @whatcharlierannext I’m with you on this one! 3 miles this morning was painfully idea why! 😩🙈 xx

  • @becca.lucy.s 1:16 PM Nov 22, 2017

    With you too. After a super tough run Monday yesterday ended with me being sent home from work sick and today the world won’t stay still. Why won’t my body just work?!?!

  • @shoulder_runner 1:25 PM Nov 22, 2017

    Feel your struggle darl, December shall be different 👊👊

  • @martine_runnermum 1:35 PM Nov 22, 2017

    Well done for still getting out there x

  • @thisgirlrunswild 2:30 PM Nov 22, 2017

    The struggle is real 😩

  • @thisgirlrunswild 2:32 PM Nov 22, 2017

    The struggle is real 😩

  • @run_h_run 2:42 PM Nov 22, 2017

    You still went out though. I am struggling with the concept of running in the dark, so I have decided to do one 3km a week and see how that goes. I don’t have mike goals like you and I’m loathed to set one as I know I won’t achieve it. Do you think you are putting too much pressure on yourself? xx

  • @vickie_healthy_running 2:57 PM Nov 22, 2017

    The struggle is so real at the moment for me too.. from doing Birmingham marathon in October I have struggled big time.. been out before work today. It was so hard 😔 so there a few of us x

  • @whatcharlierannext 3:26 PM Nov 22, 2017

  • @jofennaruns 8:06 PM Nov 22, 2017
