Well, I set out this morning and my mantra was 'matter over mind, matter over mind!' And I truly believed that today was the day I would leave wk 5 behind. I was delighted that it was raining ( yup Miles, I'm another one) unfortunately it wasn't downpourious, just a light drizzle
Anyway, set out, legs a bit heavy but not concrete like yesterday. And that extra 4 stone I so often brag about, only felt like 2 today. I decided to break it down into 4 five min runs in my head (oh how I kid myself) as this doesn't freak me out the same. First 5 mins weren't too bad but I started to get hot, I'd stupidly put on my waterproof, cos that's what you do when it rains, right? I wasn't sure if I was genuinely too warm or my mind was just trying to trick me into stopping. I told myself I could take it off at 10 mins but I wasn't stopping before then. Took it off quickly, tied it round my waist and felt guilty for walking for that short time. Though in the end up I wish I'd taken longer as I ended up running with it round my ankles!! Slowing down allowed me to regroup and set off with a renewed vigour and I completed the last 10 mins comfortably, even speeding up for the last 2!
My dilemma- I feel like I have cheated as I walked while taking coat off. I didn't run for 20 mins constantly! Do you think Laura will know? Will she be disappointed, devastated even?
I'm mad to think I need to repeat it again...aren't I??
