I have been somewhat silent of late... As some of you know I was struggling with week 7, the 25 min runs.
I can come up with a while bunch of excuses... It's cold, I'm not feeling great, it's windy, I didn't sleep well... But generally I just started to lose heart at my constant inability to complete these runs... Gremlins emerged and became demons...
So I decided - against some advice of not going back - to revisit week 5 and get a feeling of success back.
I did w5 run 1 easily with extra running in the walking stages and felt happy. Since then I have done w5 run 2 three or four times. I still find this a challenge but can complete it.
Although I am potentially a bit stuck, I'm pleased that I am getting out there and haven't given up altogether... which was so tempting!
The plan now being that once I've built my strength and confidence up a bit, I will move onwards and upwards.
So, the T0rtoise is still plodding - albeit a bit more slowly n steadily than I'd like
Well done to all you people who have managed to complete week 7 and above. I am in awe!
