I've got a horrible head cold. I have missed my Monday evening run (when it started) and now, today, my Wednesday run, possibly even my Friday run, so all in all that will be 5 days of doing nothing.
I am on Week 8 Run 2 and I'm struggling but getting through it.
I'm so close now.
Any thoughts would be most welcome, please.
I had to miss a few runs on the way, what with injuries, and just not being able to do it.
I think at Week 8 Run 2 you are well advanced. If you struggled with Week 8 up to now, just drop back a week (Week 7 Run 3), and see how it goes. Make sure you are well though, and don't push too hard. The important thing is to do the run and feel good about it. It's amazing how much fitter you will have become, and maybe not realise it. You'll be fine.
Let us know how you get on.
Thanks. I think I'm feeling generally grumpy overall because I'm not well and I want to graduate. This is good advice and I shouldn't rush it. But you are right about being fitter. Last week I ran to put some money in the parking meter before the evil ticket gnome issued me a ticket. I felt like I was a gazelle getting to and from that pay machine! I didn't know I had it in me.
