Well, I did W4R3 at the weekend. Uneventful & fine despite the heat. I was running on the treadmill with all the doors & windows open with a nice, cooling fan blowing at my back. It's hard running in the heat but I can do it as long as I take it nice & slow.
I moved on to W5R1 yesterday evening. I planned to do it in the morning before work but didn't have time. So I got home from work, feeling fit & able to do the run, I was raring to go - but I struggled so much with my mind all the way through each of the three five minute runs. My mind was screaming at me to stop, even though I was coping perfectly well physically.
Anyway, I conquered the demons & managed to complete the run. I felt very good afterwards, but it annoys me so much that I struggle mentally.
I think the problem is that I am approaching the stage where I had to stop last year, the dreaded W5R3. I suppose I just don't know yet whether I will be able to manage the runs beyond that. I'm hoping that when I get W5R3 out of the way it will start to get easier, I will start to believe, & all those mental demons will go away & leave me alone!
So the plan is to do W5R2 on Friday (I leave two full days between runs, it's better for me that way) and then tackle W5R3 on Monday or Tuesday.
I will report back on how it goes!
