Soooo close, 2 runs to go and I'm working away in a city I don't know well enough to run in the dark. I brought my stuff and found hotel had a gym so went on treadmill for first time during c25k.
Hideous! Utter disaster darling! I couldn't get the pace right, I felt like it was going slow but couldn't find a rhythm and after 11mins I had to stop. Walked for a couple of mins, eased the speed back up to a slow run, managed another 8 mins, got my first stitch ever on C25k. Had to take another couple of minutes out here and there and eventually ran 30 mins in about 37 mins (if that makes sense).
Absolutely gutted and my confidence to be able to run anything more than 10 mins on my next run, which should be my graduation run, is in tatters. Who was I kidding, shout my triumphant gremlins. Having a sniffle in my hotel room. Feeling utterly defeated. The only positive I can draw from it is that I kept going to run a cumulative 30,, even if I had to walk several times inbetween.
Positive words of encouragement welcomed. Have tried hard not to get knocked off target by injury, but wasn't expecting this. If I sound pathetic it's cus I'm feeling pathetic! 5 days to my 50th, my challenge was to complete the programme by my birthday. Suddenly feels like climbing Everest in flipflops.
