Ok, title says it all really. Ran week one of week 6, expecting it to be easy ( I've run for 20 minutes already and done 2 5k park runs) and I was a mess... a rasping, chest hurting , overcome by negativity mess.
I'm ashamed, embarrassed and feel like I am back to square one and made no progress. I don't want to quit, but I don't know how to keep going if I can't run for 8 minutes and not feel like I've just run a marathon.
Feeling despondent, Beth
