Set off for this morning with 9k in mind. Usual demons along the way trying to put me off. Thought about the post from OlderThanDirt yesterday and I have to say I found it most enlightening. I didn’t realise it but I find the same in that if I can get to a certain distance the demons disappear and I know I can keep going. Understanding that running is a psychological challenge is half the battle in defeating those demons. I can see that now.
I’m measuring in time rather than distance and keep adding on 10 minutes each week. I’m super slow but still have a good few lbs to shift although I’ve lost over a stone since I started C25K back in February which has to help!
Stopped after 80 mins and found I’d ran around 9.6k - very happy with that.
