The end is in sight ... I have consistently run Mon, Wed, Fri through the programme so far, but have started Week 8 today (Tuesday). Managed to run for the whole time and started off really slowly, but around 10-20 mins, I was so tired! I remembered having read on here lots of times that it's often mind over matter, so I tried to convince myself that I could do it, but I had to slow down slower than I've run before. I felt so silly going that slow, I felt as though I was barely moving BUT this did seem to conserve some much needed energy and I did manage to run the full 28 minutes without stopping - so I reckon, as hard as it was, this is a success Really looking forward (haha) to the next run, as I'm hoping it won't be quite as torturous as this one was! And am so motivated by the thought that I will graduate next week and I KNOW it's possible! Also trying to round up some friends to sign up for a Race for Life in May. Wondering if I should sign up for the 10k as a real challenge (even if I have to walk a part of it, which I suspect will be the case), or whether I should stick to 5k and use the next 2 months to really build on speed?? Looking forward to reading everyone else's 'success; posts from this week onwards
