Well tonight was my big run.....w5r3 and that dreaded 20 minute run. I'm having a pretty stressful time atm and tbh needed the run to distract me. But as I set out I just knew I didn't feel right. I instantly felt tired and sluggish, the complete opposite of my last run! Anyway, I continued and tried my hardest to listen to Laura's advice and take it slowly. I fought with demons constantly and it really was a mental battle! I'm proud to say that I got to about 16 mins but just had to stop! I then battled with myself for about another 90 seconds and eventually decided to run the rest! It was difficult but I finished it. I was really annoyed at myself that I didn't just keep going and I can't really explain what made me stop.
Thank to everyone on here who gave me words of encouragement. I'm going to take two days off and try the run again on Sunday when I'm more rested.
