To get you up-to-speed - I 'graduated' at the start of the year, and was working well lowering my 5k time and running longer distances. I had a few issues (really bad hayfever & medical stuff) which impacted my progress and it all started to regress.
I was frustrated that I lost the ability to run 5k - I blamed it on everything I could but I have realised something lately. The reason UI am having issues is that I really hate running. I liked the challenge of doing the 5k, loosing weight etc... but the running.... I hate it.
So i have accepted that I am not a fan of running, but I love what it had done for me. So I have backtracked to week 7 again. It is surprisingly straight forward, and I have given myself new targets. A 10k next summer, and more weight to loose.
So, who else hates running?
