I've been struggling a lot recently...I managed Week 6 Day 3, and it went very well. But then I attempted Week 7 Day 1 last week...that did NOT go well at all! In fact I was almost put off running for good. I only managed 12 mins 30 secs before giving up. I kept thinking "I can't do this, I can barely manage half of the run". I felt pretty defeated.
But last night, I decided I wasn't going to be discouraged. I went out at 9pm while there was still some decent light. Unfortunately, the C25k app kept crashing, meaning I had to rely on another GPS app (Runtastic) to log how many minutes I'd been running for. Glad to report that on my second attempt of W7R1 I actually managed the full session! As I'm a bit out of practice, it wasn't particularly easy - but nowhere near as bad as I feared it would be. Just goes to show, even if I do fall out of my routine, I can come back to it.
Makes me even more determined now!
