Got home from work and it was a lovely evening so decided to finish week 8. I chose a new route that looked like I could circuit around the area I live (with a long cool down). first 18 minutes went great but then I started to get the feeling I was lost. At 20mins I had to stop for about 45seconds to check google maps and I was way off course. Decided to just double back, got a bit more lost as these streets all look the same. Finally got back to a place I recognised and Laura told me I had 5 mins left. All was fine until the bottom of the hill I had to run up and I just...couldn't. Had to stop running with 1min 30 left and I was gutted. I've never not finished run before. Made it to the top of the beastly hill and told myself to man up it was either a long walk home or I could make up for my failure and run the rest of the way home. 10 mins later and a cheeky short cut I made it back to the home land with a 5min cool down. Question is should I repeat this run as I didn't do it properly or should I just put it down to a terrible sense of direction and move on to week 9 since I tagged in an extra 10 mins?
