For many reasons, none of them good enough, I didn't want to run today. But I have committed to running three times a week so I went to the gym. All I can say about today's run is that I did it. I have been feeling less than myself since last week because of things going on in my life, and I could push them away on Friday but today they just weighed heavily on my mind and I didn't enjoy the run. I was just going through the motions of running, but I wasn't paying attention to or enjoying any of it. It took 15 minutes for me to get into a better frame of mind, which left me with only 5 minutes to enjoy it before my legs started feeling heavy for the last 5. I didn't stop, slow down or speed up (although I did sneak a peek at the timer a couple of times) - I just ran until the treadmill ran out and didn't feel any better after either. No high from running or from reaching week 8. So I completed the run and week 7, but that's about it. Oh I got two PBs - fastest mile and km.
