Week 7 done got the head gremlins about 5 min’s in “What are you doing this for?”, “Have a little walk you know you want to”. I did a little extra so my run was 3.23 miles today and cracked it in 38 min’s. Did suffer at first with lower leg pain (shins and calf’s) but bought some running compression socks and that really helped.
I have surprised myself on how much motivation I have for this as I have done nothing fitness wise since I left the Royal Navy nearly 7 years ago and then it was only my annual fitness shuttle run. However I have been lucky with the weather and it hasn’t rained once, but has been very cold (at 05:30).
Has anybody got and good tips to banish the head gremlins?
