Started week 8 ,not a good run........anyone else feeling knackered!

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!

Just posted this today and its not showing in the news feeds ,also it says posted 3 days ago,which I didn't I posted it just now .This new site has become so complicated ,I wish admin could get it sorted ,I know they are trying really hard but it's getting on my nerves now. Also the tags are pointless and serve no real usefulness at all they are so random. Ok moan over,I'm still grumpy from my crappy run, so i shall go and put the kettle on.....
