The past few runs have seemed more difficult than the programme. I don't seem to be able to run for 30 minutes without finding an excuse to stop at about 20. Today I did better. I had to stop and walk to get around a RADAR gate on my way out, closely followed by a lace tie up. On the way back, I decided to remove my long sleeved outer top at the gate and then had to slow down to a walk later on to avoid skidding into the canal at the muddy puddle zone.
I feel I am not progressing. I know it is all in my head but I don't know what to do for the best. I think today's run was better than my three in Menorca because I was using my own music.
Has anyone got any advice for someone who thinks she is cheating calling herself a runner?
