Terrible run today. I should have started week 8 yesterday but to be honest I just couldn't cope with the heat and unfortunately couldn't run in the evening because of other commitments . Feeling a bit frustrated and not wanting to get behind in the programme I decided to go and run this afternoon. BIG mistake.....I have just confirmed what I already knew that sunshine and me do not go well together. I struggled today,more than I expected to. Oh boy did I struggle. To make matters worse i lost Laura 5 mins into the run. Luckily I have started to use the run keeper app so was able to keep track of my time,but somehow without music and Laura's encouragement I felt strangely lost. All my self doubts returned with a vengeance and I could hear my nagging inner voice telling me that I CAN'T do this. Disappointing because I thought I had learnt to control that negative side of me. Anyway the long and the short of it was that I did manage to keep going ....just, but it didn't feel good. And I'm ashamed to say that I didn't quite manage 28 mins.i was 90 secs short.....poop! I won't be running in the sun again. Definitely not!
