Okay so to-date I have managed to complete each of the runs in the program on my first attempt until tonight. I mean Sat when I was heading out to complete w6 r3 my attitude was one of okay lets get this over and done with and I did have my struggles but I finished it. I was feeling so good about it that when I came home I went on to map my run: 3.95 km, 25 mins,06:19 avg pace and 266 Kcal because I really wanted to get an idea on the distance I was doing. When I go running I only bring my mp3 and a key with me -probably not the best the idea and don't have any other gadgets and when I looked at the weekend at the cost of them I found them to a a little bit high.
Anyhow I guess the reason I've given you all that background is because after tonight's failure (my boyfriend won't like me using that word) I feel I let myself get ahead of myself and its been a bit of a wake up call. I don't know why it was exactly I struggled tonight but after about 6 mins I went into a walk. My lips was drying out and I just couldn't get comfortable. After a couple of mins I tried again but I guess maybe it was too soon because I stopped again after about a min and continued walking annoyed at myself and understanding why I was struggling. Anyhow it got to the last 5 mins and I did jog/run that and for obvious reasons felt alright and debated with my self if I should try and jog/run the walk down time on the podcast too as the walk home for the park is a bit longer than five minutes but I decided I shouldn't considering the total hard time I giving myself I thought it better to get home. I think I did reach at least 12 minutes in total tonight so I guess its better than giving up completely and coming home.
So now the dilemma is do I go out and try again tomorrow night or should I wait and try again Wednesday? If you've read this far any advice is appreciated.
