So I went out for run 2 of week 8 this morning and experienced my first fail of the programming :(!
I'm so gutted.
At about 21 minutes I was feeling overly tired, it was uphill and I had got that lower tummy pain.
I was shouting in my head, only 7 minutes- you can do this, but my traitor legs stopped.
I gave in and walked for about 4/5 minutes until my tummy eased up and then started up again.
To componsate I ran a couple of extra minutes onto the end of the time until I got back to my usual finishing place.
I think I know why I failed though. I was running at a different time to usual (morning instead of early evening).
I wasn't as hydrated as I usually am before a run.
I didn't have my wrist sweat band on. (I use one to wipe my month on instead of spitting onto the street - sorry if this is tmi)
I also think I may have started out too quick as I was struggling to get a steady pace.
Anyway, I'm going to try not to dwell on it- I'm going to pick myself up have a couple of days rest and give it another go on Tuesday.
