Ok, now this getting weird... After v dodgy weeks 3-5, I am finding later runs much easier. Think I have vanquished the gremlins by proving them wrong (them: 'you can't do this..' me: '(ahem) go away' or words to that effect.) I did week 7 run 1 today and quite enjoyed it. Never felt like I was going to give up, anyway. So if you're struggling early on, don't give up. It gets better. Good luck with your journeys, all.
