Week 8 complete - just! (2nt attempt to blog)

Don't know why but today was very hard. Heat maybe. Stats for today not quite as good as last run? Mostly cos I couldn't speed as much on the last stretch. Still I pushed through and finished, even if I couldn't quite keep up with hubbie! This is how I felt:

1-5 mins - what am I doing?

8-12 mins settled down a bit

14 mins - go faster Laura? You got to be kidding!

23 mins - I'm sure I got quicker here last time, there's no way I can today!

27 mins- a bit faster but I can't breath, slow down , don't stop!

Still I did it so onto week 9. Eek! I'll just put today down to a not such a good one!

  • I had a poor jog today. When Laura said I ONLY had 5 mins left I also gave up...the previous 5 went so slowly. It was so warm too! Glad I wasn't the only one suffering today

  • My internal monologue sounds quite similar to your when I'm running! I'm always surprised by my willpower though. You've only got one more week to go, wow! Good luck :)

  • I'm always shocked when L tells me 14 mins. I feel like I've been running for ever! And your internal conversation is MUCH more polite than mine :-0
