After struggling and failing the 20 min run on week 5 I worried about moving to week 6, but was glad I did as managed to complete the 25 mins at end of week 6 first time -.have to say that was much more mentally than physically challenging. Then I took the advice of others on here forW7 R1 and used my own playlist, and ended up running for nearly 30 mins! Listening to my own music really helped me beat the mental battle - I knew roughly when to turn back for home and hearing that song start was much more motivating than Laura's"half way" announcement. I did miss her encouraging comments but the music on the podcast is unfamiliar and a bit uninspiring, so didn't miss that at all! Would recommend using your own playlist to anyone struggling with the longer runs. W7 R2 tomorrow, let's hope it continues to work....!
