I hope this, my very first post on the forum, doesn't come across as attention seeking or needy, but after this mornings run I really need some encouragement (and I've seen from other posts that this is definitely the place for support). I really didn't feel like going for my run this morning - I hadn't slept well and just didn't feel up to it - but I hadn't been out since Saturday. When I first started I made myself the rule that I wouldn't go more than two rest days unless injured/ill. It was a real push to go out, but I did and I was feeling better. Halfway through the hail started... The only thing that kept me going was that my final 3 minute run would get me home quicker than if I gave up and walked the rest of the way. I'm only on week 3, completed run 2 this morning, and feel like it will be a big battle to get through the rest of the programme. Please help keep me going, I don't want to give up!
