Week 7, I am done with you

Didn’t want to go out this morning, felt tired. This was my fourth run since Wednesday and it felt like it’s beginning to catch up with me. Anyway, I did go, although spent the first 10 minutes having a conversation with myself (in my head) about stopping when I feel like it, and it not really mattering if I didn’t do this one properly because I’m tired and deserve a break (does anyone else do this?). But then I just started to think well I might as well do this bit, I’ll get to the corner, then this bit, and before I knew it I’m past the halfway point and might as well finish the whole thing. I was glad to stop when the time came but knowing I’d done it felt brilliant. I’m giving myself two days off now. Week 8 will start on Friday.

  • Doing brilliant vistor.. you deserve those two rest days.. in fact I would recommend it.. don't want to push too hard and cause any joint strain.. but seems your right on track.. graduation not too far off in the distance.  

  • Glad it's not just me,I  do that all the time! What amazes me is thinking 'only another 15mins to go' when I first started C25K running 90 secs filled me full of fear. 

  • Wohoooo! Go you! You did it!  Next time don't talk to yourself unless it's to gee yourself up and pat yourself on the back.   Week 8 already!  The hardest runs are behind you I'd say, from what I recall of the programme. Just take your time and enjoy yourself

  • Probably just needed a bit longer rest. You did brilliantly

  • Well done vivster! Still on the IC here so stalled at wk7 r2. Excellent progress you're making! 

  • Thanks! Hope you get back out there soon.

  • I DO THAT!   I haven't given in yet... I start Week 7, Day 1 today.. and I'm hoping to power through. I run on the treadmill though, so my inner thoughts are more "Just one more song". I'm glad I'm not the only one who's brain isn't the best cheerleader mid-run!
