W5R3 - Mind 1, Matter 0

I decided I couldn't do it, so didn't!

Was looking forward to W5R3. I thought this would be the day when I really started to feel like a runner. Ha! It's fair to say that when the going got tough today, I bailed. I think I'd decided that I couldn't or wouldn't do it before I'd even finished my warm up. Ok it was really warm this morning... And I needed the loo...and a drink... And each leg felt like it was carrying an extra 2 stone... But this is no excuse! I didn't even run the 8 mins that I ran the other day.

Anyway... This is how I roll. Usually at this stage I'd just give up. Not this time! I don't even feel bad at giving in this morning, it had to happen sometime.. It's me!! :-) so.. Will try again tomorrow. Matter over mind, matter over mind !!

It's early in the morning, have you got 'early morning blues' ? You CAN do this you know, you really can. There are lots of hours left in the day to change your mind and let the matter win !!!

Hiya these boards are always full of people being disappointed by bad runs. They happen, they are rubbish but guess what? Those same people are always back a few days later saying that they tried again and it went brilliantly!

Please don't give up when you have come this far. Give yourself a break then get back to it and you know you will be posting positively soon!!



You sound pretty positive so I have little doubt you will be posting about a successful run tomorrow. Slow and steady - you will do this.

Good luck!
